EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photograph taken in 1931, three luminaries of the artistic world come together against the backdrop of the Venice Lido. The enchanting scene features the renowned theatre designer and interior decorator, Oliver Messel, flanked by Mme Lucien Lelong, also known as Princess Natalie Paley, and the celebrated ballet dancer, Serge Lifar. Messel, with his distinctive moustache and dapper attire, exudes an air of sophistication and creativity. His design for the sandy stage set, complete with an elaborate sandcastle, adds a whimsical touch to the image. Mme Lelong, dressed in an elegant gown, exudes an aura of grace and refinement. Her regal bearing and captivating smile make her a vision to behold. Serge Lifar, the Ballets Russes star, adds a sense of dynamism to the photograph. With his intense gaze and athletic build, he embodies the strength and passion of a world-class performer. The trio's pose, with Messel and Mme Lelong gazing at Lifar, suggests a moment of inspiration and collaboration, as if they are brainstorming ideas for a new project. The Venice Lido, with its Venetian architecture and sandy beaches, provides the perfect setting for this artistic gathering. The sandcastle, a testament to Messel's imaginative design skills, adds a playful element to the photograph, making it a truly enchanting snapshot of a bygone era. This photograph is a reminder of the creative synergy that can occur when artists from different disciplines come together, and the timeless allure of the Italian city of Venice.
