In 1908, Stanislavski conceived show on Moscow Art Theater impossible: the souls of men, the gods of the other world, animated objects, and the kingdom of the future. So there was a legendary performance of “Blue Bird” (the drama extravaganza Symbolist Maeterlinck), which was literally packed with awesome stunts. One of the heroes broke off their fingers, and they grew again, under cover of night dancing plates, came to life milk, bread, fire, water. Special attention is paid to the director and costume makeup, which plays an important role in the creation of fabulous images. Due to the unique vintage photo greeting we have the opportunity to see how it looked.

SO I’ve uh… owed one Simon Eckert an art trade for a long time, but had no idea what to make for the guy. What do you make for the guy who can draw everything himself? Also, we’ve both been really busy, so we hadn’t been communicating about what I might be able to make for him. He sent me an email today about what he wanted.

I don´t know if you´ve seen it, but I really love ” Die Nibelungen” from Fritz Lang. Yes, It´s got a lot of Pathos and is really (like 5 hours) long, but it´s also wonderfully designed with a lot of art deco and geometrical patterns and great characters. So if you like such stuff I can definitely recommend it.
So I´d like to ask you for your interpretation of Krimhild (played by Margarete Schön). I´ve attached some photos for reference . She´s portrayed as a beautiful, stern and vengeful woman in the movie, but feel free to interpret however you like.

I own and love one of Fritz Lang’s other movies (M), so this was cool right off the bat! Then I uh, googled and opened the reference images he sent.

This is the coolest art trade I have ever been asked for.

Oh my god, this is so cool.

This is so cool.

awesome

A mix of photos and posters from Wagner operas, and Fritz Lang cinematography. Have to admit, I have a weak spot for these old interpretations of Germanic costumes and aesthetics, no matter how inaccurate they may be.

To watch the 1924 movie Die Nibelungen: Siegfried by Fritz Lang, is even today an uplifting experience. Preferably enjoyed over a glass or two of white wine. That’s about as decadent you can get without even feeling ashamed of yourself. If you wish to try it out, it seems you can watch the complete movie online here: http://dai.ly/frmzyr. You’ll have to buy the wine yourself though.

Ah the beauty and romance of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orientalism_%28book%29 —I think required reading to accompany posting pictures that ultimately celebrate and glorify this period
