Rolf de Mare Art Collector, Ballet Director, Museum Curator By Erik Naslund With a fortune inherited from one of Sweden’s wealthiest families, Rolf de Mare (1888-1964) was able indulge in a life in the arts as an art collector, a ballet director, and a museum founder. He has often been compared to Diaghilev by creating his own company, the Ballets Suédois, in Paris (1920-1925), which attracted many of the leading painters, poets, and composers of the time such as Cocteau, Leger, Picabia, Satie, and Claudel. His home was a magnet for a cosmopolitan elite from both the art world and Parisian high society in the 1920s. He opened the first dance museum in Paris in 1933 and, after his death, left his impressive art collection to the Paris Opera Museum and to the Stockholm Dance Museum. A gorgeous book! Erik Naslund is the Director of the Stockholm Dance Museum. Special shipping rate applies 616 pages, hardbound; more than 1,000 illustrations, many in color ISBN 978-182731-128-1
