Photo of Meyerhold and Eisenstein at rehearsals for The Prelude

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

  • This rare photograph of Eisenstein and Meyerhold together in rehearsal depicts a bustling creative atmosphere with Meyerhold, center, pointing out something on a piece of paper and Eisenstein, left, sitting behind a round table. Those in the photograph, all men, are in jackets and ties except Meyerhold, who wears a striped sweater under his open blazer.
