Fuller had scientific leanings and perpetually experimented with electrical lighting (which was then in its infancy), colored gels, slide projections, and other aspects of stage technology. She discovered and patented special arrangements of mirrors and concocted chemical dyes for her draperies. Her interest in color and light paralleled the discovery of many artists of the period, notably the painter Seurat, known for his Pointillist technique of creating a sense of shapes and light on canvas by applying extraordinarily tiny dots of color rather than by painting lines. One of Fuller’s major inventions was under lighting, during which she stood on a pane of frosted glass illuminated from beneath. This was notably effective in her Fire Dance (1895), performed to the music of Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries.”The dance caught the attention of artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who depicted it in a lithograph.
