In this portrait fantasy, Tretchikoff has identified the prima-ballerina in her most famous role, the Dying Swan, from which, as did Pavlova, she has become inseparable in the minds of all lovers of the ballet; it is for this reason that the artist has painted the swan and Markova as one and the same being. Posed by Alicia Markova. Painted in South Africa Artist’s Collection, 1950’s First Hand Tretchikoff Print. This print has been produced to the highest quality under the artist’s personal supervision and is accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authentication.
