About this Item

A remarkable album: 24 panels of hand-inked and painted costume designs for a production of Gogol's Government Inspector (a.k.a. The Inspector General, originally Revizor). These delightful designs, slightly reminiscent in style of Jean de Brunhoff's illustrations, convey a great deal of personality; each panel's character is shown in a different pose ? including those characters given more than one costume ? with a range of expressions portrayed throughout. The images were painted on heavy panels bound together with cloth tape => leporello- or accordion-style, with the entire sequence unfolding as one very long, very impressive strip ABOUT 20 FEET LONG. Following Anne Gregory's name on the cover here is the designation, "'71," but its significance has not been established. There was a premiere of Zador's revised operatic version of The Government Inspector at El Camino College in that year, and these do look like they could be operatic costumes; so perhaps the date refers to that production ? or, perhaps "Anne Gregory" was to graduate from that institution or another, that year. (27 cm, 10.65"). 24 col. illus. As above, cover panels with small smudges, interior panels clean and bright. => A unique and extensive work of art, offering literary, theatrical, and costuming interest in addition to its aesthetic pleasures.
