Loie Fuller in ‘Serpentine’ dress

Portrait of Loie Fuller wearing an early version of her “Serpentine” dress. The photograph features a full length portrait of the dancer kneeling amidst a pile of cushions, with her arms upraised, and a small carved snake clasped in her right hand. Her skirt, which is decorated with repeated images of snakes, is raised up and spread out in a wide circle behind her, date unknown, late 1890s. | src V&A Museum
