Biographical/historical: Marie Taglioni, the ballerina most closely identified with nineteenth-century Romantic ballet, made her London debut in June 1830 in a revival of Charles Didelot's ballet Flore et Zéphire. Though she fell short of conventional standards of physical beauty, her supernal grace of movement had audiences flocking to see her. This print predates the ballet in which she had her greatest triumph, her father Filippo Taglioni's La sylphide (1832), the defining work of the Romantic ballet. Her popularity evidently did not depend on a single role, but sprang from dance qualities she displayed in a variety of roles.
