Description
Spiral Costume, from the "Triadic Ballet" Karl Grill German, 1926 Gelatin silver print 8 7/8 x 6 3/8 in. 84.XM.127.8 In 1922, Oskar Schlemmer premiered his "Triadic Ballet" in Germany. He named the piece "Triadic" because it was literally composed of multiples of three: three acts, colors, dancers, and shapes. Concentrating on its form and movement, Schlemmer explored the body's spatial relationship to its architectural surroundings. Although an abstract design, the spiral costume derived from the tutus of classical ballet. http://www.getty.edu/art/gettyguide/artObjectDetails?artobj=41168
