        Hubert Julian Stowitts The Work of Stowitts for the Fox-God [Fay-Yen-Fah].

        Est: $800 - $1,200

        Hubert Julian Stowitts The Work of Stowitts for the Fox-God [Fay-Yen-Fah]. Hollywood, CA: George Palmer Putnam, 1939. First American edition (after Paris: Bernard Freres, 1928), limited to 400 numbered copies, this copy 111. Publisher's printed cloth. 15 1/4 x 13 inches (38 x 33 cm); [iv], 41, [1] pp., [52] ff plates. Near fine. A striking pictorial album of mounted colored designs. Hubert Julian Stowitts (1892-1953) was born in Nebraska, became (among many things), a ballet dancer, actor, athlete, designer and painter--working as a dance partner with, for example, Anna Pavlova and Ida Rubinstein of the Ballet Russe. His designs for the opera Fay-Yen-Fah (1926-27) are representative of his exuberantly bold and controversial designs. He created many exceptional projects in his career, notably a series of Fifty Portraits of American Athletes for the Berlin Olympic games (1936).

An elaborately produced volume containing the classic Chinese Opera "Fay-Yen-Fah," along with the traditional designs, costumes and decor, as illustrated in Stowitts decorations and color plates. Hubert Julian "Jay" Stowitts (1892-1953) was a dancer, artist, track and field star, and a student actor who attended the University of California, Berkeley from 1911-1915. He devoted his life as a professional dancer after being inspired by a ballet performance he saw in San Francisco. He was soon "discovered" by the famed Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova and traveled as a successful dancer throughout the Americas and Europe, becoming the first American to star with a Russian ballet troupe. After a solo career, Stowitts retired from dancing and began a new career as a painter and occasional film actor. He traveled and lived in the Far East and South Asia, where he produced 155 paintings he called "Vanishing India." At the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, his exhibition of fifty-five paintings of nude male American athletes caused a "sensation." The Nazis closed the exhibit down, partly because it showed depictions of Jewish and African-American athletes. Includes a glossy reproduction from a photograph titled "La Pavlowa a Paris" with Anna Pavlova and Stowitts in a ballet performance in full costume, laid in.
