RUDOLF NUREYEV. Legendary Russian dancer.
Full length photograph of the legendary dancer, on stage, at the conclusion of a performance, the curtain lowered behind him, holding a few flowers, with an expression of gratitude on his face for the accolades of the audience. Signed vertically in gold ink on the right side. The black and white photograph measures 8 inches wide by 10 inches high.
Rudolf Nureyev is wearing an elaborately embroidered velvet jacket which fits him perfectly. As a meticulous performer, the Russian dancer demanded costumes that were not only beautiful but precisely engineered to suit the physical demands of his dance. He loved sumptuous decoration — fantasias of embroidery, jewels and braid.
Framed (with burgundy inner and outer mats, in a decorative gold frame) dimensions: 14 inches wide by 16 1/8 inches high.
