    use any Byzantium or Christian themes and nor was he interested in icon painting which had recently been rediscovered in Russia because it was Christian oriented He had a sense of separateness as he did not totally identify with Russian culture Bakst in 1916 Wikimedia Commons Christian art and Bakst s sense of separateness collided during his enrollment at the St Petersburg Academy of Arts In 1886 his third year of study he submitted a Pieta for a competition and scandalously contemporized the subjects by depicting Mary and the disciples as impoverished Jews He was consequently dismissed from the Academy Later at the time of his exhibition in 1889 he changed his name to a variation of Baxter his maternal grandmother s name It has been suggested that Bakst changed his name to sound less Jewish making it easier to assimilate and rise socially Bakst clearly had a conflicted Jewish identity Upon marrying a Lutheran woman in 1903 he converted After his divorce in 1910 he returned to Judaism This renewal of faith later prompted the addition of a Star of David into his personal letterhead a change he made in the 1920s Regardless of his feelings towards his heritage Bakst successfully made a name for himself through his art Famed and lauded for his designs for the internationally renowned Ballets Russes Bakst revolutionized theater design elevating it to its own art form Traditionally theater design color palettes consisted of pale pastel hues but Bakst was not one for tradition Detail of curtain design Bakst received great praise for his use of color in costume design by selecting dizzying hues matching the movement of the dancers This sense of movement is clearly prevalent throughout his theatrical portfolio exemplified in this curtain design for the 1924 ballet Istar Theatrical curtains are the audience s first introduction to a production and this example must have created quite a bit of excitement and anticipation for the performance The shades of green blue and pink may seem like a strange combination yet together they form a vibrant backdrop The curtain design captures the vibrancy and movement of the stage with swirls of color and folds of fabric ready to billow and sway out of the frame The design is imbued with an Orientalist flavor European artists took inspiration from the East for centuries a trend that reached a new height in the nineteenth century and into the twentieth For a Russian artist like Bakst native to a country which was long conflicted regarding its identity placed between the East and West Orientalism must have been particularly appealing Bakst described Orientalism as the Persian and Russian manner mingled The delicate naturalistic drawings of pomegranates flowers and white peacocks heightened with gold are drawn in a simplified manner commonly associated with woodblock printing These motifs are contrasted against a rich cobalt blue ground The artist s signature device of rhythmic movement is evidenced in the parting of the curtains on either side to reveal two different
