Rambova Salome Sketch, in Black, Gold and Turquoise. Rambova allowed her wanton creativity to run amok with this one - a voluptuary adorned in basic black, complete with gold and turquoise accouterments and an antenna-like flourish rising from her temple. This lascivious lady has lush blue and black eye makeup, and wears shoes festooned with bells on the toes. A piece of glorious high camp, this sketch is nevertheless remarkable in its evocation of the daring movie for which it was designed, and the prodigal era in which it was produced. This is a costume Natacha Rambova would probably have loved to have modeled privately for Valentino (and who says she didn't?). Border damage does not affect the actual 8.5" x 11" artwork. Very fine condition.
