Born in Odessa, Barjansky came to Paris in 1919 and became a popular designer of costumes for theatrical, ballet and movie productions. He was forced to leave France prior to the Second World War and ended up in Hollywood where he worked on movies. Most of what remains of his work are delightful, softly stylized, Art Deco theatre programs and magazine covers. His style was on a par with the master Art Deco fashion illustrators of the era such as Georges Lepape and Georges Barbier. La Bayadère (The Temple Dancer) was an operetta, originally performed in 1877. It opened at the Mogador theatre on January 30, 1926, and was the first production staged by the Isola Brothers, who ran the theatre from 1925 through 1936. Rare.
