Tatjana Barbakoff, 1931

Born Cilly Edelberg in Latvia in 1899, the dancer who called herself Tatjana Barbakoff (1899-1944) lacked formal dance training, yet created a world of her own through her charming personality, exotic stage costumes and lyrical dance expression. She is shown here in 1931.

Institution: Patrizia Veroli.
