Alexandre Benois (1870–1960) was a Russian artist, stage designer, and art critic who played a pivotal role in the development of the Ballets Russes, an influential ballet company based in Paris. Born into an artistic family in St. Petersburg, Benois studied at the Imperial Academy of Arts and was a founding member of the art movement Mir Iskusstva (World of Art). He gained international acclaim for his set and costume designs, particularly for ballets like "Petrushka" and "The Sleeping Beauty," where he collaborated with the likes of Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Diaghilev.
Benois' work is characterized by its intricate detailing, historical accuracy, and a keen sense of color and composition. He often drew inspiration from Russian folklore, classical literature, and historical events, imbuing his designs with a rich narrative quality. In addition to his contributions to ballet and theater, Benois was also a skilled painter and art critic, authoring several books on Russian art history.
