Photo of Vsevolod Meyerhold

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

  • Photograph of Meyerhold taken in front of a mirror so that both his face and profile can be seen simultaneously. Though taken more than a decade after Meyerhold’s Doctor Dapertutto days officially ended, this photograph plays whimsically with the director’s continued interest in doubles and doubling. It also recalls Alexander Golovin’s 1917 portrait of Meyerhold, painted with Meyerhold sitting before a mirror to achieve the same effect.
