Bust portrait of the dancer Anna Pavlova (1881-1931). Pavlova was one of the most famous ballerinas of all time. With her large eyes, long neck, high cheekbones and dark hair, Pavlova's looks typified everyone's ideal of a classical ballerina. Born in St Petersburg in 1881, Pavlova was inspired to dance after seeing a production of the ballet The Sleeping Beauty. She trained at the Imperial Theatre School but by 1906 she was associated with the revolutionary ideas of Mikhail Fokine, who choreographed the famous Dying Swan for her.
