Leon Bakst was born in Grodno, Belarus. Bakst is known for his stage designs and costumes for Sergei Diaghilev's "Ballets Russes".
His designs are a mingling of very elegant and refined styles, themes and techniques. Influenced by Greek vase painters and miniaturists the use of vivid color is what Bakst is best remembered for in his designs. He died in Paris in 1924.
