Detailed description

Costume design by Pierre ROY
(the crossed shins and the head of death are the Pierre Roy's signature)

Pierre Roy designed sets for the theatre and ballet, including Coppelia London 1938, Le Lion Amoureux for Covent Garden and Jeux de Cartes for the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Paris.

En 1914, peu avant sa mobilisation, Pierre Roy se lia avec Adrienne Ridou, une couturière de 23 ans travaillant pour Paul Poiret. Le couple eut un garçon, Denis, en 1917, mais la jeune femme mourut d'une péritonite en 1919 ( l'enfant fut élevé par Donatienne, la soeur de Pierre). Ce dessin provient de la succession d'Adrienne Ridou. Cette succession contenait aussi des maquettes d'Erté avec lequel Adrienne avait collaboré pendant la guerre après la fermeture de la Maison Paul Poiret.

In 1914, shortly before his mobilization, Pierre Roy befriended Adrienne Ridou, a seamstress of 23 years working for Paul Poiret. The couple had a son, Denis, in 1917, but the young woman died of peritonitis in 1919 (the child was raised by Donatienne, Pierre's sister). This design comes from the estate of Adrienne Ridou. This sequence also contained models of Erte with which Adrienne had worked during the war after the closure of the house Paul Poiret.
