EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative image captured at the Venice Lido in 1931, Serge Lifar, the renowned Russian ballet dancer, is seen adopting a graceful ballet pose on the sandy shore, surrounded by the radiant beauty of three elegant women. Lifar's sun-kissed features are etched with the intensity and passion that defined his artistry on the stage. The women at his feet are Madame Simon Rolo, Donna Bice Figerio, and Madame Lucien Lelong, also known as Natalia Paley. Natalia, the wife of the famous French dress designer Lucien Lelong, was known for her own captivating beauty and had a two-year affair with Lifar. The trio exudes an air of sophistication and glamour, their chic attire and poised demeanor a stark contrast to the relaxed setting of the Venice Lido. The sun-dappled scene, with the shimmering waters of the Adriatic Sea in the background, adds to the dreamlike quality of the moment. This photograph offers a rare glimpse into the lives of these intriguing figures, capturing a fleeting moment of pleasure and indulgence amidst the glamour and intrigue of the European social scene of the time. The image is a testament to the enduring allure of the arts, beauty, and the allure of the Italian Riviera.
