Set model for Princess Brambilla

From The Director's Prism: E. T. A. Hoffmann and the Russian Theatrical Avant-Garde by Dassia N. Posner

  • This set model, brimming with all the colors of the sunset painted onto its fragmented angles and whimsical curves, gives a keen sense of the three-dimensional, fantastical world in which Tairov’s actors played.

    For a photograph of the original (no longer extant) set model (figure 26 in the book), see Russian State Archive of Literature and Art, f. 2328, op. 1, ed. khr. 377: 3. Durable URL to object folder: http://rgali.ru/object/200374227.
