[COSTUMES FOR "WALZER AUS WIEN" / THEATERKUNST HERMANN J. KAUFMANN].
[A collection of 26 water colour drawings depicting costumes for the pasticcio "Walzer aud Wien"]. About 1930-6.
. Comprises 26 plates (26 x 22 cm) with 31 costume drawings painted in water colours with notes and numbers in pencil. The notes refer to the operetta characters and possibly Swedish artists who were famous at that time. A label "Theaterkunst Hermann J. Kaufmann" pasted on the reverse of the plates. Housed in a specially-made box. The pasticcio "Walzer aus Wien" arranged by Erich Wolfgang Korngold and with music by Johann Strauss (father and son) was first performed at the Vienna Stadttheater in 1930. The following year it was restaged in London as "Waltzes from Vienna" and a French version entitled "Valses de Vienne" was produced in Paris. The successful operetta was based on the rivalry between Strauss the elder and Strauss the younger. We have not been able to find any Swedish performance but this set of drawings listing Swedish artists indicates that such a plan existed, even if it was never implemented. We don't know who made the drawings but the Kaufmann labels suggest that they used to belong to them. Theaterkunst Hermann Kaufmann, founded in Berlin 1907, became the world's biggest costume house for theatre, opera, and later also film productions. In the 1930s the company expanded internationally but in 1936 Hermann Kaufmann had to sell it due to political pressure.

TABAKA, SEIKO (ARTIST):
Tsuya Koromo (or Tsuyagoromo) (Elegant costumes). Three volumes (complete). Kyoto, Honda Unkind Meiji 39 (1906).
. Folio (22.5 x 32.5 cm). A collection of 150 wonderful woodblock-printed designs for kimonos, all rendered in rich and vivid colours, some heightened with metallic inks, protected by tissue guards. Each volume has two preliminary pages and one colophon at end. The double folded leaves are bound in the traditional Japanese style. Original paper wrappers, front covers printed in different colours, ribbon ties. The covers are lightly rubbed but overall the books are in lovely condition. Housed in a cloth folder. An impressive large-size design book with motifs clearly inspired by nature which was common at this time. Fairly sparsely decorated. The volumes are subtitled: tsuki (moon), hana (flower) and yuki (snow) respectively. At the end of the 19th century when Japan's economy boomed and the textile industry flourished the customers of traditional kimonos were eager to order new designs with modern patterns. The publishers were collaborating with talented artists to produce impressive design albums (zuan-ch). They were used as manuals for craftsman but also appreciated as beautiful objects to be enjoyed for their own sake. This particular set of kimono designs seems very rare. We haven't been able to find any complete set in a western institution (Thomas Watson Library, N.Y. has volume 2 & 3).

TZARA, TRISTAN / DELAUNAY, SONIA (ILLS.):
Le coeur à gaz: costumes de Sonia Delaunay. [Paris], Jacques Damase, [1977].
. Narrow folio portfolio. Size: 21 x 45 cm. As issued on heavy paper. With 51 numbered pages printed on recto only on (17) folded sheets + 2 pages and one blank. Comprises the text of the play "Le coeur gaz" by Dadaist writer Tristan Tzara. Accompanied by twelve lithographs by Sonia Delaunay. Includes seven theatre costumes by Sonia Delaunay which are colour reproductions of the gouache maquettes made for the performance at Thtre Michel in 1923, two more double page lithographs (one issued as extra title page and one with two costumes) and three lithographed decorations in the text. Original card covers with striking design in black, red and cream. Limited edition of 150 copies, of which this is no. XXI (of XXV reserved for collaborators) on this publication and signed by S. Delaunay on the colophon. (The first 25 copies, nos. 1- 25, in the series were accompanied by a supplementary suite of 7 signed lithographs). A gorgeous copy of this beautiful and scarce work. Tristan Tzara (1896-1963) was the famous Roman-born writer and artist who was known to be one of the central figures in the anti-establishment Dada movement. His noted play "Le cur gaz" was first staged as part of the 1921 "Dada Salon" at the Galerie Montaigne in Paris. It was written as a parody of classical drama in the form of an absurd dialogue between characters named after human body parts; mouth, ear, eye, nose, neck and eyebrow (Tzara himself). The second stage production, also titled "Le Cur barbe" was performed at Thtre Michel in July 1923. Sonia Delaunay, the famous Ukrainian-born French artist, designed and costumed the production. She created bright-coloured eccentric geometric-shaped suits of thick cardboard. The play has been seen as the last event in Dada's development as a cultural movement.
