‘Primula Vera’ (Lo Hesse), 1920

Walter Schnackenberg :: Ballet und Pantomime ‘Primula Vera’ (Lo Hesse), plate # 7, 1920. | src 1st dibs “Schnackenberg was a regular contributor to the German magazines Jugend and Simplicissimus before devoting himself to the design of stage scenery and costumes. In the artist’s theatrical work, his mastery of form, ornamentation, and Orientalism became increasingly evident. He excelled at combining fluid Art Nouveau outlines, with spiky Expressionist passages, and the postures and patterns of the mysterious East.” (quoted from source)
