The early 1890s were an important period in the establishment of Léon Bakst’s cre¬ative personality. He became acquainted with Alexander Benois in March 1890, was introduced to the circle of artists that later constituted the nucleus of the World of Art, experienced the first tastes of success at the exhibitions of the Society of Russian Watercolourists and embarked on his first trip to Europe, visiting Germany, Belgium, France and Spain in summer 1891. The artist was influenced by classical European art. Bakst depicts himself trying on a beret and a smock, the traditional attire of the maes¬tro artist, symbolising his induction into the role of professional server of the muses.
