Howard D. Rothschild (d. 1989) was an artist and a major collector of art work related to Serge Diaghilev 's Ballets Russes. His fascination with Ballets Russes began in 1915 when as a child he attended one of the company's performances in New York. Over the years he became a close friend and an anonymous benefactor of many aging Ballets Russes dancers. His collection was acquired through various auction houses in Europe and the US.

Howard D. Rothschild (d. 1989) was an artist and a major American collector of artwork related to Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. He developed a passion for the Ballets Russes as a child after attending a ballet where Waslaw Nijinsky withdrew from a performance during the company's tour of America in 1916. The collection was amassed by purchase and by gift from the dancers and artists with whom Rothschild developed friendships.

Serge Diaghilev (1872-1929) was a Russian ballet impresario, the founder, producer and artistic director of Ballets Russes.

Ballets Russes was established by Serge Diaghilev in 1909 as a touring company to promote Russian ballet in Europe. After World War I the company permanently relocated to the West. The company gave rise to careers of a great number of outstanding Russian and Western dancers, choreographers, composers and artists who had recreated the art of ballet for the 20th-century, both in Europe and in the United States.
