Описание в каталоге

Intrigued by the union of modernity and tradition within Eastern plays, Alexandre Iacovleff was a regular visitor to Asian theatres where he made many drawings and paintings from life. In 1922 he wrote, "I should like to express and to explain the attraction of [Eastern] dramatic art and the importance which I attribute to it. It was in Peking, whose countless walls, one after the other, reveal the phantoms and ancient mysteries of the autocratic East, where the profane hands of the traveller may touch the abandoned throne of the Celestials...that I attempted to understand and comprehend the charm of her thousand-year-old culture." (Tchou-Kia-Kien, Alexandre Iacovleff, The Chinese Theatre, London, John Lane, 1922).
