A Star of the Show…
Our featured work this Autumn is Ballet Scene by Mark Gertler.
This is a rare drawing from the time of the Russian Ballet visiting London, in 1918; the work features Tamara Karsavina and Vaslav Nijinsky dancing in “Carnaval” by Schumann, choreographed by Fokine for Diaghalev’s Ballet Russe. It was exhibited at the London Group‘s exhibition in 1919 and the Sunday Times considered it one of the most important pictures in the exhibition. It is inscribed by the artist with his studio address in Hampstead with date of 1918
