Anna Pavlova in the Ballet Sylphyde, 1909

Anna Pavlova in the Ballet Sylphyde, 1909

Valentin Aleksandrovich Serov

Pavlova's infinite finesse, delicacy and emotional dimension was captured by artist Valentin Serov, who painted her famous 1909 life-size portrait. Pavlova is depicted in her favorite role as a white swan on a blue background.

Anna Pavlova (1881-1931) was the daughter of a laundry-woman. Her father may have been a young Jewish soldier and businessman; she took the last name of her mother's later husband who likely adopted her when she was about three years old.

When she saw The Sleeping Beauty performed, Anna Pavlova decided to become a dancer, and entered the Imperial Ballet School at ten. She worked very hard there, and on graduation began to perform at the Maryinsky (or Mariinsky) Theatre, debuting on September 19, 1899.

In 1907, Anna Pavlova began her first tour, to Moscow, and by 1910 was appearing at the Metropolitan Opera House in America. She settled in England in 1912. When, in 1914, she was traveling through Germany on her way to England when Germany declared war on Russia, her connection to Russia was for all intents broken.

For the rest of her life, Anna Pavlova toured the world with her own company and kept a home in London, where her exotic pets were constant company when she was there. Victor Dandré, her manager, was also her companion, and may have been her husband; she herself distracted from clear answers on that.

While her contemporary, Isadora Duncan, introduced revolutionary innovations to dance, Anna Pavlova remained largely committed to the classic style. She was known for her daintiness, frailness, lightness and both wittiness and pathos.

Her last world tour was in 1928-29 and her last performance in England in 1930. Anna Pavlova appeared in a few silent films: one, The Immortal Swan, she shot in 1924 but it was not shown until after her death - it originally toured theaters in 1935-1936 in special showings, then was released more generally in 1956.

Anna Pavlova died of pleurisy in the Netherlands in 1931, having refused to have surgery, reportedly declaring, "If I can't dance then I'd rather be dead."

The painting will be delivered unstreched, rolled in protective & presentable case.
