Description

Winged Ballerina Pin by Edward Gorey

This wonderful ballerina has been adapted from a drawing from The World of Edward Gorey. Sterling silver, hand finished.

Winged Ballerina with Edward Gorey's signature on the back adapted in low relief from one of his drawings. This wonderful Winged Ballerina, fluttering on point, first appeared on the set of Amphigorey, a musical written by Gorey and produced in 1992 and then in the book The World of Edward Gorey. A truly unique figure in American art and illustration, Gorey's carefully executed drawings depict, in this case the ballet world, in a style that is instantly recognizable.

History

Ballet

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
 
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
