Lora Verhovsky’s work was donated to the Museum of the Jewish History in Russia
In 2009 the 16th International Festival of Arts “Art-November” and the State Institute for Study of Arts, Moscow hosted a show “Homage to Diaghilev” by the Israeli artist Lora Verhovsky.
It featured original big-size leather intarsias made from sketches by the prominent artists – collaborators of the great impresario: Léon Bakst (sketch of a dress for “Jewish Dance” in the “Cleopatra” ballet), Natalia Goncharova (sketch of a costume for John the Apostle in the “Liturgy” ballet), Konstantin Somov (“Masquerade”), and Pablo Picasso (sketch of a costume for a Chinese Sleight-of-Hand-Performer for the “Parade” ballet). Lora Verhovsky's marvelous pictures, with their astounding splendor and ornamentation, are a tribute to, and a token of admiration for, the genius of Sergei Diaghilev.
On October 21 2013 Lora Verhovsky’s work the “Jewish Dance” was donated to the Museum of the Jewish History in Russia (www.mievr.ru) by the Foundation GRANY and the Moscow ASTI Gallery according to the request of the artist.
