EDITORS COMMENTS
1. Title: "A Day at the Lido: Venetian High Society Basks in the Sun" This evocative photograph captures a moment in time, transporting us back to the golden age of Venice's Lido in 1931. The image presents a captivating scene of Venetian high society members enjoying a leisurely day at the beach. The Hon. Mrs. Evelyn Fitzgerald, elegantly dressed in a striped bathing suit and wide-brimmed hat, reclines on the sand, her eyes closed in relaxation. Nearby, Prince Jean de Faucigny-Lucinge, dressed in formal attire, engages in a lively conversation with Count Giovanni Sangro Buccino. The Princess Jean de Faucigny-Lucinge, also known as Baba de Erlanger, lounges on a chaise longue, her glamorous outfit accentuating her sophisticated air. Senor Bestegui, an enigmatic figure, sits on the sand, seemingly deep in thought, while Lucien Lelong and his wife, the former Princess Natalie Paley, share a playful moment in the water. The Ballets Russes star, Serge Lifar, adds an air of artistic flair to the scene as he poses confidently on the beach. The Lido, with its crystal-clear waters and golden sands, served as the perfect backdrop for this gathering of the European elite. The photograph beautifully encapsulates the essence of a bygone era, where the rich and famous came to bask in the sun, beauty, and charm of Venice. This photograph, taken in 1931, is a testament to the timeless allure of Venice and the enduring appeal of the Lido as a playground for the world's most influential personalities.
