Printed Image signed: "Anna Pavlova". Color, 6x8½, mounted to 6¾x9 board (two surfaces). Reproduction of a color portrait by an unknown artist. Russian prima ballerina Anna Pavlova (1881-1931) made her U.S. debut at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York in 1910. She had studied with the Maryinsky Theatre's Imperial School of Ballet in 1891, joining the Imperial Ballet in 1899 and becoming a prima ballerina, after having successfully danced Giselle, in 1906, the year before she embarked on her first tour of Moscow. After returning to Russia in 1910, Pavlova founded her own group with eight dancers in St. Petersburg, Russia, and she began making world tours (including her first return visit to the U.S.) in 1913. Pavlova was known for her grace and elegance, evident in her most famous performance, The Dying Swan. In 1918, she choreographed Autumn Leaves, which, along with Californian Poppy and The Dragonfly, became audience favorites. Signature light but completely legible. Both image and mount are lightly soiled. Three-inch cut at upper right margin of mount. Name written (unknown hand) in red pencil on verso (no show through). Verso is lightly soiled, mounting remnant at center. Overall, fine and lovely.
