Another of my latest collages studies -

'Pas de Quatre' was originally choreographed by Jules Perrot in 1845 to music by Cesare Pugni.  Premiere  July 12, l845 His Majesty's Theatre, London, England created for Lucile Grahn, Carlotta Grisi, Fanny Cerrito, and Marie Taglioni. The ballet caused a sensation with both critics and public, when it premiered in London in July of 1845.

The order of appearance of the ballerinas was done by age, from youngest to oldest, to squelch further confrontations between them. The original cast of Pas de Quatre only danced four performances together; Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were in attendance on 17 July 1845, at the third of these four performances.

The dancers in this image are from l950 Festival Ballet in London.   The dancers are Nathalie Krassovska (1918 - 2005) as Carlotta Grisi, Alexandra Danilova (1904 - 1997) as Fanny Cerito, Tatiana Riabouchinska (1917 - 2000) as Lucille Grahn and Alicia Markova (1910 - 2004) as Marie Taglioni.  January 01, 1950 - Credit: Baron.  Several productions can be seen at YouTube.

I read a story recently and was inspired by Spike taking flowers to Joyce and her appreciation of his use of the symbolism of flowers and plants - I used it for Spuffy.   Original comic book artwork by Steve Morris for Dark Horse.
