Vintage photograph of ballerina Tamara Toumanova - The Black Pearl of the Russian Ballet
Photograph Inscribed and Signed: "To Shirley Postor/My best regards/Tamara Toumanova.", B/w 10x8. Born in Siberia, Tamara Toumanova (1919-1996) made her debut at age ten in the children's ballet L'Eventail de Jeanne at the Paris Opera. She was then engaged for de Basil's Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo (1933) as one of the three "baby ballerinas" - for this she became known as "The Black Pearl of the Russian Ballet". She left the Ballet Russe in the 1940s and joined the Marquis de Cuevas Ballet - continuing to dance professionally until 1969. Dancing many times in the US, she also wanted to make movies: Days of Glory with Gregory Peck (1944), Tonight We Sing - as Anna Pavlova (1953), Deep in My Heart with Jose Ferrer (1954), Invitation to Dance with Gene Kelly (1957), and The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970). Lightly toned and worn at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
