scene designs

   Scene design did not truly emerge as a distinct artistic contribution to theatre production until late in the 19th century, a development accelerated by the New Stagecraft in the 1910s. Robert Edmond Jones was exemplary in his ability to design lighting and costumes, as well as settings, for all manner of plays, contemporary (Eugene O'Neill) and classic (Shakespeare). Before Jones and others of his generation, stage scenery had evolved from flat, painted literalism to an extreme three-dimensional realism exemplified by David Belasco's productions. Jones's impressionistic approach, inspired by European designers, inspired the next generation of designers: Lee Simonson, Jo Mielziner, Donald Oenslager, and others.
