While researching for a studio project I came across this image of Maria Germanova, an actress in the Moscow Art Theatre at the turn of the last century. Apparently this is her in ‘The Bluebird’ by Maurice Maeterlinck. I love her look – reminds me of Lene Lovich! Elsewhere – in the comments on another blog somebody in a comment noted the similarity between this costume and an Iberian sculpture known as ‘The Lady of Elche’. Fascinating stuff. But, my God, this woman really knew how to work a dress!
