Chromolithograph. Sheet 245 x 145mm, 9½ x 9¾".
A dancer in a glamourous version of the Italian ceremonial military uniform, holding a standard, with the Colosseum behind. The costume was made for the Army and Navy ballet at London's Alhambra Theatre. Although the theatre 'specialized in beautiful ballets' it was notorious as a meeting place for prostitutes and their clients.
Not in Ogilby.
