Valentin Serov - Portrait of Ida Rubinstein, 1910.

And caricature on it by Alexei Radakov

The portrait by Serov marked a new, art nouveau, period in his art. The nude image of a Russian dancer Ida Rubinstein caused a scandal in Russian cultural society and became an object of criticism and joke. “A galvanized corpse” - such a short and harsh comment on it made Ilya Repin.

Also Ida herself was a rather scandalous person - she began her dance career too late for a professional and  got fame for her unusual for that time erotic manner of performance. This portrait depicted her as Salome, her debut role in 1908, in which she stripped  nude. In 1910 she was already a European celebrity after joining Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and successfully working with Nijinsky, Bakst and Fokine.
