about this painting:
Ballerinas have always been famous for their grace and delicacy. Most people when they think of ballerinas imagine someone very romantic and sophisticated. Many artists have been fascinated by ballet dancers and opera singers. Some contemporary painters and a lot of ones from the past created an amazing collection of oil paintings of such nymphs and goddesses.
A moment of reflection
Would you like to find your way behind the scenes of the theatre? Do you want to get a glimpse of the pre-premiere fuss? Would you like to feel the excitement and agitation of the artists before they go on stage? Look at this delicate young lady in the oil painting. Is she tired after the performance? Or does she look upset? Or maybe this is her first time and she is just afraid to perform? A lot of questions come to mind when you look at this work of art. This beautiful young lady is sitting on the floor. She has wrapped her legs with her delicate thin arms, covered with a snow-white dress. She has her head rested on her knees. A beautiful wreath on her head with white flowers wonderfully matches her dress. Her eyes are closed. What is she thinking about? Maybe she is thinking about that long journey she’s had up until now? Or when, as a little girl, she was performing in the living room in front for her parents. They were laughing and applauding. They admired and encouraged their little girl. And now she’s become a beautiful young woman and a professional ballerina. Or maybe she is just dreaming about being a leading ballet dancer and performing on the stage of the Bolshoi Theatre?
Some of the most famous ballerinas were:
- Marie Rambert;
- Anna Pavlova;
- Maya Plisetskaya;
- Matilda Kshesinskaya;
- Galina Ulanova;
- Anastasia Volochkova;
The truth is that we can make a hundred different hypotheses about this young lady, about her past and future, but we will never know what exactly she is thinking about. Maybe this was the artist’s idea from the beginning. And it worked! This painting does keep us wondering.
