Costume designs, apparently by the same hand, for female performers in a theatrical work, possibly a ballet or opera. Their wide-bottomed shapes suggest Russian matryoshka or nesting dolls. One woman wears a pointed kokoshnik or traditional Russian headdress; her full sleeves are ornamented with scallops, and she carries a green scarf in her right hand. The other two women are more simply dressed; their long sleeves cover their hands, and they wear head scarves tied under their chins. On the verso of the drawing of the woman in the kokoshnik is a rudimentary sketch of a stage plan. The drawing of the woman in green includes pencil sketches possibly depicting details of costumes or props
