I love those parasols...This is a wonderful pic Judith...good luck with the research, tell us what you find out. Happy searching, xv.
I think it's the Asian counterpart to Sally Rand and her Dance of the Fans.
I love parasols!! I have an lovely lavendar one that I carry with me on my adventures around town to protect my "delicate" milky white skin...smooches
Wow, this is great! The twenties is one of my favorite time periods. I have some great old publicity photos that I found at an antique mall. One that I particularly liked was of Carola Goya - an American 'Spanish' dancer - and I think it was in the 20's. Much to my surprise, I sat next to her at the rehearsal studio of Ballet Nacional de Espana, in Madrid. She was ancient. We both wore velvet hats and she kept staring at mine, and then she fell asleep. She was lovely. Hope you find your gal.Thanks for your comment, J. It meant so much to me.Catherine x
Stunning photo! I wish I had the answer for you - like the time you helped me figure out those Santos Cage Dolls. I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend!
It wasn't known as the mysterious East for nothing - hope you figure it out and can share with us soon! I'm as curious as you are!
Have no idea where, who or when but it is a stunning picture.
If you have not yet learned, it's Ruth St. Denis....A Burmese Solo Dance, 1923...photo by Nickolas Muray.
