These two bound volumes from the collection each have a distinct focus: one on popular piano music from the mid-1800s, and the other on popular songs for piano and voice from 1899 to 1902 with an emphasis on blackface minstrelsy.

L'Art Decoratif de Leon Bakst

Léon Bakst (1866-1924) was a Russian portraitist and designer who spent much of his career in Paris. This book reflects his extraordinary collaborative work with Sergei Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes as well as the dancers Ida Rubinstein and Vaslav Nijinsky. The costumes and set designs in the book demonstrate his modern yet exotic aesthetic as well as a consistently brilliant and detailed use of color.
