The Firebird (From Stravinsky) 1985

Elisabetta Gut, The Firebird (From Stravinksy), 1985; Gift of H.G. Spencer in honor of Lorraine Grace

This unique artist’s book, like many of Elisabetta Gut's works, is a visual representation of music and dance.

The Firebird evokes the lightness and plumage of a beautiful bird, a figure that animates the flowing music of Russian composer Igor Stravinsky’s famous ballet, first performed in Paris in 1910. Stravinsky’s Firebird is based on Russian folk tales of a magical, glowing bird that is both a blessing and a curse to its captor.
