fashion design, fin de siècle, la Belle Otéro, Leo Rauth, modern dance, Oswin Haas, Ruth St. Denis, Schlangentanz
All I can send you today are these images by Leo Rauth (1884 – 1913). They feature dancers one of whom is American modern dance “pioneer” (Wikipedia), Ruth St. Denis (20 January 1879 – 21 July 1968), shown above performing a “snake dance,” without the snake. They also feature la Belle Otéro (4 November 1868 – 12 April 1965). (Wikipedia)
Leo Rauth also designed rather “poetical” clothes.
I found a lovely piece of music by Oswin Haas.
