Vintage Harpers magazine October 1913-cover by Leon Bakst - symbolizes the Apple Tree - rare cover - contents - vol XLVlll, No.4 - 86 pgs -
Leon Bakst was born on May 10, 1866.
He started his artistic career as an illustrator for magazines but changed his mind when he met Aleksandr Benois. His stage designs quickly brought him international fame. Most notable are his costume designs for Diaghilev's Sheherazade (1910) and L'Apres-midi d'un Faune. Bakst designed exotic sets which were an integral part of the production along with beautiful, often oriental, costumes made of explosive pure, bright colors that just floored audiences. Vogue & Harpers used his talents for their Covers as well....
