For a short period of time, 1918-19, not long before mental illness completely overtook his life, Vaslav Nijinsky created a small body of drawings and paintings…The largest collection of this Nijinsky’s art is in the collection of the Foundation John Neumeier. Neumeier is a dancer, choreographer, and the director of the Hamburg Ballet.
