NEW-The Fauves were the sensation of Paris in the early years of the 20th century. A group of artists surrounding Matisse, they earned their name - which literally means "wild beast" - for their use of intense, arbitrary color. When Diaghilev's Ballets russes took Paris by storm in 1909, , the costumes designed by Leon Bakst in a Fauvist manner set off a fashion rage that was to last through the 1920s. These brilliant textile designed, created mostly in Paris betweeen 1910 and 1920, capture the spirit of those adventurous times. Includes twelve full-color designs; each tear-out sheet is four times book size. In English, German and French. Still in shrink wrap. ; Folio - over 12 - 15" tall
