DE MEYER, Adolphe (1868-1946) and BENSON, Richard (1943-2017). Après-midi d'un Faune: Nijinksky 1912. New York: Eakins Press Foundation, [1978].

Adolphe de Meyer’s iconic work restored by Richard Benson—immortalizing the 1912 performance of the controversial avant-garde ballet, Après-midi d'un Faune, choreographed by and starring Vaslav Nijinsky. Lee Radziwill’s close friend, the renowned Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev, famously danced the part of the Faun in a Joffrey Ballet revival of the piece. This book was given to Ms. Radziwill by her third husband, Herbert Ross.

Folio (18.1 x 14 inches). 33 palladium prints in various sizes, prepared by Richard Benson after the original negatives. Original taupe cloth with paper label. Provenance: note of gift from Herbert Ross to Lee, on his stationary.
