Eleonora Duse

From Portrait to the icon: the charm of an actress through photography

Topics: 

The Duse Archive photographic collection is a treasure trove of an inestimable value.

The quantity and variety of the photographic prints in the collection capture all the charm exercised by Eleonora Duse in her long career in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

A selection of private portraits and images of Duse posing in stage costumes will enable visitors to explore the world of this extraordinary actress, woman and sublime artist as well as her theatre. On the exhibition itinerary visitors can admire some of the finest photographs of Duse: images that contributed to creating her great reputation and have preserved her memory to the present day.

In addition to a large number of youthful portraits, the works in the exhibition include photographs by the Florentine photographer Mario Nunes Vais, the Spaniard Pau Audouard and some prominent American photographers, such as Aimé Dupont, Joseph Byron, Arnold Genthe and Edward Steichen.
