Rhythm & Colour by Richard Emerson
Publisher: Golden Hare
Hélène Vanel (1898–1989), Loïs Hutton (1893–1972), and Margaret Morris (1891–1980) were dancers of the avant-garde who performed in their own theatres, in costumes they designed, against backcloths they painted. Without money, precedent, or male support, these three women achieved fame and notoriety at the centre of the great artistic movements of the 20th century.
This beautiful and extensive book examines, for the first time, the life, work and loves of these dancers through newly discovered letters, photographs, journals, memoirs, and contemporary criticism.
