Alonso (& Youskevitch) in THEME AND VARIATIONS

Recommended Posts

How interesting -- I've seen lots of photos with different elements masked out like that, if they want to make a group shot into a portrait, but the cut line on the back implies that it ran with both dancers in the shot. Most likely, the masking is from a later, sloppier use, and no one bothered to change the information on the back, but as it is right now, it does look pretty bizarre!

there are two dates stamped on the back of the print, both from '48, one for March and another for April.

presumably in Mar. it was used in full; the portion of the photo above the pasted caption shows the full frame.

subsequently, in April, one supposes, the photo was used as a portrait of Alonso, perhaps on the second occasion as less specific publicity for Ballet Theatre and not one necessarily pegged to THEME AND VARIATIONS.
