New York Times Looks At Robert Edmond Jones

In a Sunday, May 24 article entitled Setting The Stage With Shadows, J.D. Biersdorfer in The New York Times examines the work of the celebrated stage designer Robert Edmond Jones (1887-1954). The article examines Jones' designs for a 1930 production of the Schoenberg Opera, Die Glückliche Hand, (The Hand of Fate), in which lighting casts shadows on the expressionistic set of craggy peaks. The drawing pictured in the Times is part of the current exhibit, "Creating The Modern Stage: Designs For Theatre and Opera" at the Morgan Library & Museum, through August 16, 2009.
