Music Division Set and costume design collection

Collection Data

Description
The set and costume design collection is an artificially created collection of graphic designs intended for productions of operas and other works. Material has been drawn from a number of archival collections as well as individual items that were acquired by the Music Division over a period of time. The collection consists chiefly of two dimensional set and costume designs in a variety of mediums, among them watercolors, blueprints, tempera, ink, pastels, and pencil. Some designs include fabric swatches. Designers of more than 30 items represented include Lewis Brown, H. A. Condell, Ladislas Czettel, Frederick Kiesler, Donald Oenslager, Wolfgang Roth, Richard Rychtarik, and Rouben Ter-Arutunian, among others.
