[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.

[BEARD, M.A.]
[WATERCOLOUR WOMAN PORTRAIT WITH CUT OUT CARDS]. : A charming set of transformation cards. No place but probably Britain, 1855.
A watercolour portrait of a young woman together with six cut-out cards in watercolour depicting different costumes to dress the woman. Size: 11.5 x 13 cm. Some slight age toning to the paper and a few minor spots but overall in very good condition. Housed in a modern paper folder. There are two contemporary signatures on the verso of the portrait: E.M. Gulland 1855 (the woman?) and M.A. Beard (the artist?). Five of the six cut-out cards have contemporary annotations on the back: Gypsy, Roman Peasant, Aragon, Swiss and Turkish respectively. The card without annotation depicts a queen with a crown (perhaps Mary Stuart?).
