A fine pochoir image in very good condition by George Barbier of the great Ballets Russes dancers Vaslav Nijinsky and Tamara Karsavina dancing in 'Jeux'.
In his diary Nijinsky wrote that Diaghilev had intended the theme of 'Jeux' to be about a homosexual encounter between three young men. In the end it became about a man, two girls, and a game of tennis. The ballet premiered in May 1913 in Paris. The music was composed by Claude Debussy and the choreographer was Nijinsky. Tamara Karsavina, Vaslav Nijinsky and Ludmilla Schollar played the three characters.
