IGOR YOUSKEVITCH
The Russian-born ballet artist signs a caricature of himself dancing.
Self-Caricature signed: "Igor Yousketitch/1980", 6x9. Ink drawing of a leaping male ballet dancer, signed and dated with the same pen. Russian-born dancer Igor Youskevitch (1912-1994) danced with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, and later returned there as its artistic director. A US citizen from 1941, he served in the US Navy during World War II and - at war's end - reconditioned himself for dance, starring with the American Ballet Theatre, often paired with Alicia Alonso. His athleticism is on display in Gene Kelly's 1956 film, Invitation to Dance. The year he signed this drawing, he closed his two decade-old ballet school in New York, but he remained a teacher at the University of Texas (Austin) through 1982. Creased from folds. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
