Loïe Fuller was one of the most innovative and fascinating artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1892 she first took Paris by storm with her Serpentine Dance, and then Europe. Her pioneering choreographies and technical innovations in the fields of dance, lighting and stage design as well as film had a lasting influence on many painters, sculptors, writers, theatre and film directors of her time and anticipated fundamental elements of 20th-century media and performance art. Her circle of admirers and friends included some of the most important artists, writers and scientists of her time, among them Auguste Rodin, Thomas Edison, Pierre and Marie Curie and Stéphane Mallarmé. Photographs, sculptures, films, drawings and advertising posters show the importance of “La Loïe” as a muse of the Parisian avant-garde and it-girl of the Belle Époque.
