Lot Details
Salome / Natacha Rambova: a watercolour, ink and pencil concept costume sketch,
for the Paramount production, 1922, the design of a female servant wearing distinctive headdress which extends down over the shoulders, signed and dated in black pen N. Rambova, 1920, in mount and framed, 13 x 11in (33 x 28cm)

Footnotes

  • It appears that the costume seen on screen was modified from the design in this sketch, however the distinctive head and shoulderpiece are clearly visible. It has been documented that some of Natacha Rambova's designs for the 1922 production of Salome were adapted from earlier productions, including Aphrodite, 1920, which was shut down during filming, and Cecil B. De Mille's production of Fools Paradise, 1921. It is possible that this design was originally intended for an earlier production.
