Prima Ballerina Assoluta

Oils on 36'' x 36'' stretched canvas.

Untitled so far, but I am sure it will come to me once she is finished. It could be a dancer, and the white silk or light is swirling around her. Updates will follow.


Prima Ballerina Assoluta. Definition:
The title or rank of prima ballerina assoluta was originally inspired by the Italian ballet masters of the early Romantic Ballet and was bestowed on a ballerina who was considered to be exceptionally talented, above the standard of other leading ballerinas. The title is very rarely used today and recent uses have typically been symbolic, in recognition of a notable career and as a result, it is commonly viewed as an honour rather than an active rank.
