Painting - Oil
This oil painting shows Rudolf Nureyev and ballerina Bryony Brind, who performed together for the famous Nureyev version of the Shades scene from the classical ballet la Bayadere in the early 1980's. Light is used to emphasise the concentration and focus of the dancers.
La Bayadere is a Royal ballet favourite, with a tale of love , murder and vengeful judgement by the Gods, set in legendary India.
