Capturing Nureyev: James Wyeth Paints the Dancer
James Wyeth (il); Clive Barnes (in); Pamela J. Belanger (ed)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
When James Wyeth first met Rudolf Nureyev in NY City in 1974, the dancer instantly intrigued him, & he has continued to inspire Wyeth artistically. Supremely conscious of his public image, Nureyev was notorious for tearing up photos of himself that he considered unflattering. Wyeth recognized that photos revealed only a small portion of Nureyev’s complex character. Wyeth captured in his painted portraits aspects of the dancer not seen through a photographer’s lens. The 35 full-color portraits presented here show Wyeth’s evolution as a painter, & also reflect on Nureyev as a performer. Essays by Barbara Cohen-Stratyner & Lauren Raye Smith join reminiscences by Lynn Seymour, & memoirs & photos from Wyeth’s wife Phyllis. Illustrations.
