Tamara Karsavina as Armide and Adolf Bolm as the Vicomte from Le Pavillon d'Armide (1909). E.O. Hoppé. National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.
The leitmotif of the story’s animated Gobelins tapestry is expanded to dominate the stage, with the costumes’ painted silver patterns and metallic braids and fringes designed to catch the light as the performers, animated from their woven state, appeared to weave in and out of the overall decoration.

My dear Darling
I am just writing you a very little letter, which I hope you will get on Friday or Saturday. There won’t be anything in it at all, except to say that I shall be thinking about you when you get this, & hoping that everything will go wonderfully well. I am quite sure it will. Also, I might add that I do love you Bertie, & feel certain that I shall more & more. I shall miss you terribly. You are such an Angel to me.
Goodbye till Sunday - may it come quickly
from your always and forever loving E

Emil Otto Hoppé (14 April 1878 – 9 December 1972) was a German-born British portrait, travel, and topographic photographer active between 1907 and 1945. Born to a wealthy family in Munich, he moved to London in 1900 to train as a financier, but took up photography and rapidly achieved great success.
He was the only son of a prominent banker, and was educated in the finest schools of Munich, Paris and Vienna. Upon leaving school he served apprenticeships in German banks for ten years, before accepting a position with the Shanghai Banking Corporation. He never arrived in China. The first leg of his journey took him to England where he met an old school friend. Hoppé married his old school friend's sister, Marion Bliersbach, and stayed in London. While working for the Deutsche Bank, he became increasingly enamored with photography, and, in 1907, jettisoned his commercial career and opened a portrait studio. Within a few years, E.O. Hoppé was the undisputed leader of pictorial portraiture in Europe. To say that someone has a "household name" has become a cliché, yet in Hoppé's case the phrase is apt. Rarely in the history of the medium has a photographer been so famous in his own lifetime among the general public. He was as famous as his sitters. It is difficult to think of a prominent name in the fields of politics, art, literature, and the theatre who did not pose for his camera."
Although Hoppé was one of the most important photographic artists of his era and highly celebrated in his time, in 1954, at the age of 76, he sold his body of photographic work to a commercial London picture archive, the Mansell Collection. In the collection, the work was filed by subject in with millions of other stock pictures and no longer accessible by author. Almost all of Hoppé's photographic work—that which gained him the reputation as Britain's most influential international photographer between 1907 and 1939—was accidentally obscured from photo-historians and from photo-history itself. It remained in the collection for over thirty years after Hoppé's death, and was not fully accessible to the public until the collection closed down and was acquired by new owners in the United States.
