Statement of responsibility: M. Gauci lithog. ; printed by C. Hullmandel.
Content: Facsimile signature at bottom.
Biographical/historical: Marie Taglioni is the ballerina most closely identified with the Romantic ballet. Dancing the title role in her father Filippo Taglioni's ballet La sylphide (1832), she ushered in a new era in ballet, in which mortal men ventured into the mysterious realm of the supernatural, embodied by beautiful and desirable but elusive young women. She enjoyed the celebrity of a contemporary film star or rock idol, and was the subject of innumerable portraits by artists of her day.
Biographical/historical: This lithograph is a variant of a portrait by Pierre Roch Vigneron, made by Maxim or Massimo Gauci, 1774 or 1776-1854, a British printmaker who was born in Malta and settled in London in 1809. An image similar to Gauci's, attributed to John Pendleton, was published as a sheet music cover for La Taglioni waltz, arranged by W.H. Phipps.
