In the first half of the nineteenth century, the ideals of Romanticism sparked dramatic innovations in dance movement and costume. Ballet, once an art seen principally in court performances, won new audiences among the growing middle classes and became a popular art form. The soaring movements and gestures, the technical virtuosity and dancing "on point," as well as the long tarlatan tutu, flesh-colored tights, and the heelless dance slipper that we know today originated in the Romantic period. The art of ballet flourished because of the dazzling expertise, style, and personalities of the great dancers who dominated the period. This enthralling book depicts eight of the most celebrated of those dancers as beautifully costumed paper dolls, each with three additional costumes from their most famous roles. Here are the influential Marie Taglioni as "La Fille du Danube"; Carlotta Grisi as "Giselle, " which would become the prototypical Romantic ballet; Fanny Elssler, the first world-class ballerina ever to appear triumphal in America, in "La Gypsy"; Fanny Cerrito as "La Esmeralda"; Lucile Grahn, a star of the Royal Danish Ballet, as "La Sylphide"; the legendary Lola Montez as a Spanish dancer; Jules Joseph Perrot, a major choreographer and the greatest male dancer of the Romantic era, in "Giselle"; and Augusta Maywood, the first American ballerina to have an international career, as "The Maid of Cashmere." To add to dance lovers' enjoyment of this exciting collection, artist Tom Tierney has included a fascinating introduction to the Romantic ballet and its stars, brief biographies of each of the dancers, and captions for each drawing.

Описание: Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald ... the "Lost Generation" ... illustrations by John Held, Jr. ... the "It" girl ... Lucky Lindy ... Louis Brooks ... prosperity, seemingly endless, and the inevitable crash. The twenties loom large in the American imagination as a decade unto itself, a brief span of years, but with a style all its own. In this paper doll collection, noted fashion illustrator Tom Tierney brings back the style that set the twenties apart, at least in terms of haute couture. Here are the fashions that gave the decade its distinctive chic and, in the process, revolutionized women's wear. Gone is the elaborate corsetry of the Edwardian age, waistlines are lower, hemlines are higher and costume jewelry is de rigueur. Thirty meticulously re-created costumes and two dolls (15 costumes per doll) present the voguish looks established by such haute couture legends as Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Madeleine Vionnet, Paul Poiret, Madame Paquin, Worth, Lelong, and 11 others. Paper doll collectors, costume fanciers, and fashion historians will appreciate this delightful collection of artfully rendered paper dolls and costumes.
