  1. I found the photo in question in Keith Money's book p.221, thank you rg, and i was wrong the photo is described as portraits by Eugene Hutchinson,Chicago 1915 in costume for dance Espagnol for the movie "Dumb Girl of Portici". I understand that Hutchinson must of made a series of portrait photos of Pavlowa in various costumes for the "Portici" movie. The are several examples of these photos in several books, KM'S book p.218 & 221, on p.111 of Valerian Ivchenko 1974 edition of Anna Pavlova, on p.139 of John Lazzarini's book, and on p.237 of Victor Dandre's book. It appears that Pav

  3. Hello I can across this photograph of Anna Pavlowa three times in three unrelated activities last month and i think fate has called to me to discover more. This photograph was taken by a "famous" portrait photographer name Eugene Hutchinson marked 1915 in Chicago, this photo appears in the photo book Fugitive Gesture, The: Masterpieces of Dance Photography by William Ewing and it states that it is part of the Gelman Paper Photo collection and not much more is know about this photo. I have a Max Rabinoff ballet program of Pavlowa's 1914-1915 tour with this photo in the program, i think

I was browsing the NYPL.ORG performing arts library and found a reference, for the collector Gennally Smakov who gave a collection of photographs used in his book "The great Russian dancers" and most of the items date 1818-1917 so i am sure that their are photos of Russian Imperial Ballet Dancers. - *MGZEB 92-17894 Author Smakov, Gennady, collector.

  6. I understand what you saying regarding the Lithuanian-Vasiliev version, with the dancers and Orchastra on stage. The people here in Vilnius:Lithuania tell me that in the ending of Vasiliev version Mstislav Rostropovich, the Lithuanian conductor, gently linked the arms of the two dead lovers as he continues to direct the orchastra. - The Lith National Ballet is off in the summer so i could not see their performance. :angry: - Kevin
  7. I understand the Joffrey will be opening its season with John Cranko's R & J, also i know that the Lithuanain National Ballet performed its version (by Vladimir Vasilev) in London this past spring played by the London Symphony Orchastra under the baton of Lithanian's Mstislav Rostropovich. Also i have a women friend who is a corps dancer for the Kremlin Theater of ballet and they just did Yuri Grigorovich's version of R & J in Cypus and Lebanon last month and of course she says the Grigorovich's version is better that the other two versions. - I am planning on attending the

Two of the books waterdance and pool light were photographed underwater freeing the nude ballet dancer from the effects of gravity, then Schatz also did Passion and Line. - I wonder if the carears of any of the above women and men dancers suffered negative effects posing nude for these photos.Modern dance performers are sometimes in the buff to express their art,but a nude ballet dancer i
