About this Item

Folio. Original tan wrappers printed in blue. Wrappers tanned, chipped, creased, and separated from contents, dark spots to upper wrapper, creasing to corners of contents. Very good condition. Tipped-in plate and illustrations throughout. The rare programme for the Grand Bal des Artistes, "a philanthropic venture for the Union des Artistes Russes, a society that brought together many of the Russian émigré painters and critics such as Victor Bart, Sonia Delauney, Serge Romoff, Léopold Survage, and Zdanevich. Goncharova and Larionov designed much of the publicity material including the programe, the flyer, and the ticket They also invited Russian and French colleagues including Bart, Albert Gleizes, Juan Gris, Ferdinand Léger, Pablo Picasso, and Survage to sponsor and design forty loges which were then sold in aid of the Union" (Bowlt, Faces Painted with Fanciful Patterns, in USSR 5/6). The programme itself includes two illustrations by Picasso, as well as images by Gris, Derain, and Gontcharova, and facsimile poems by numerous authors. The Union organised a number of artists' balls in the early 1920s, but this was by far "the most ambitious The program included four dance bands and two bars serving 'pommes frites anglaise et cocktails' and the dancing was supplemented by all kinds of happenings" (Bowlt). A fantastic and ephemeral publication. Bookseller Inventory # 79456
