Anna Pavlova 20th Century Ballerina

Recommended Posts

Jane Pritchard, the Curator of Dance at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London has published a book on Anna Pavlova with Caroline Hamilton, a dance and costume historian. (Pritchard organised the Ballet Russe exhibition last year and edited the accompanying excellent book of essays).

This is a large format hardback (10 x 13 inches) with 170 profusely-illustrated pages, a few in full colour. It has a British slant as most of the sources are the V & A and the Museum of London. The text is also excellent, and places her properly in the history of 20th century ballet. While there is much published on Pavlova nothing rivals the wealth of illustrations in this book.

It is on offer on Amazon.com at the amazing low price of $23.18 if bought now for release in early March. It is also available on Amazon.co.uk now from £14.99. Unmissable.
