Tamara Karsavina as The Young Girl in Mikhail Fokine’s ballet Le Spectre de la rose, premiered by the Diaghilev Ballets Russes in 1911 with designs by Leon Bakst.

Date: 1920s (Drawn)
Artist/Maker: Vera Willoughby, born 1870 - died 1939 (Designer)
Materials and Techniques:  Pencil, pen and ink and gouache
Credit Line: Cyril W Beaumont Bequest
Museum number: S.702-2001
Victoria and Albert Museum

Description and Image from: Victoria and Albert Museum “ The figure was designed by Vera Willoughby and represents Tamara Karsavina as The Young Girl in Mikhail Fokine’s ballet Le Spectre de la rose, premiered by the Diaghilev Ballets Russes in 1911 with designs by Leon Bakst. It is one of a series produced for the dance historian, bookseller and publisher, Cyril Beaumont, who commissioned designs from various artists which were then executed by the Aldon Studios and coloured by hand for sale in Beaumont’s shop at 75 Charing Cross Road.

Beaumont had admired Caran d’Ache’s satirical wood carvings of political personalities, and, about 1914, he conceived the idea of two-dimensional wooden figures of principal dancers of the Diaghilev Ballets Russes. The figures represented the dancers in costume in a typical pose from the chosen work; they were cut out from two-ply wood, hand painted and mounted on detachable stands. Each design was limited to 50 copies, originally hand-coloured by the artist and issued at 7s 6d. They sold steadily. Adrian Allinson designed nineteen figures in all and after the War, Beaumont turned to other artists and commissioned a separate artist to execute the colouring.” (vam.org)

 I had a dream, which was not all a dream.The bright sun was extinguish’d, and the starsDid wander darkling in the eternal space,Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earthSwung blind and blackening in the moonless air;Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day,And men forgot their passions in the dreadOf this their desolation; and all heartsWere chill’d into a selfish prayer for light:And they did live by watchfires—and the thrones,The palaces of crowned kings—the huts,The habitations of all things which dwell,Were burnt for beacons; cities were consum’d,And men were gather’d round their blazing homesTo look once more into each other’s face;Happy were those who dwelt within the eye…  ~Lord Byron,  Darkness (excerpt)

I had a dream, which was not all a dream.
The bright sun was extinguish’d, and the stars
Did wander darkling in the eternal space,
Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth
Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air;
Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day,
And men forgot their passions in the dread
Of this their desolation; and all hearts
Were chill’d into a selfish prayer for light:
And they did live by watchfires—and the thrones,
The palaces of crowned kings—the huts,
The habitations of all things which dwell,
Were burnt for beacons; cities were consum’d,
And men were gather’d round their blazing homes
To look once more into each other’s face;
Happy were those who dwelt within the eye…
