 about this painting:

Dance of Passion

The brightness of ballet

Perhaps some people think about ballet as about an academic art form. We imagine it as a dull and rather faded show. However, Dance of Passion is destined to dispel these stereotypes. Here the artist managed to use many bright colors with the help of which he depicted not only the background of his paintings but also the dancer herself. So we see such colors as turquoise, Azure, blue and  dark blue, beneath – such  shades as yellow, red and orange. The ballerina herself is dressed in a graceful red, orange and yellow dress. Her long hem waives like a bright flag. It is set in motion by the intense movements of the ballerina. Her arms spaced widely are in a classical ballet pose, the movement of the hands is complemented by the movement of the legs – while one foot stands on the floor the other is laid back. At her right hand we see a burgundy spot – as if the ballerina is holding a piece of burgundy fabric.

Discovering ballet

What do you know about Russian ballet? We have prepared for you some fascinating facts with which to study this most beautiful form of art will become even more interesting:

  1. For the first time in Russia, the ballet was staged in 1675 at the Alexey Mikhailovich Theater; its plot was connected with the myth about Orpheus.
  2. Initially, only men participated in the performances.
  3. Russian ballet was so popular in the world that sometimes foreign artists took Russian pseudonyms - Patrick Healy-Kay (Anton Dolin), Alice Marks (Alicia Markova)
  4. In the troupe, the artists occupy different positions. Thus, the leading soloists are called: prima ballerina or premiere. Corps de ballet is used in the crowd scenes.
  5. The most grandiose billboard of all time was published in Paris in 1909. It was made in honor of the Anna Pavlova tour, its length was 2x3 meters, and its author is V. Serov.

Enjoy the bright colors of the ballet with Dance of Passion. We are sure that your idea of ​​this art form will be somewhat updated. You will become a different way to look at this kind of dance and abandon the idea of ​​it as something academic and sublime.
