Signed Antique French Ballet Engraving From the famed French Arts and Theatre magazine Paris Illustre, 1885, with an Opera theme.. comes this rare and intriguing ballet engraving.

It is signed by the artist Leon Commere (1850-1916) lower centre, and the printer Imp. Charles Gillot (1853-1903) lower left, it is drawn in the typically French bold and slightly cheeky style...faintly reminiscent of the work of Toulouse-Lautrec.

Entitled 'Le Reve d'une Danseuse' (the dancer's dream) it is from an original pen and ink sketch and is in shades of pale peach against a cream ground.

It features a young ballet dancer relaxing amidst a pile of floral bouquets and gifts..dreaming of being a fine lady in a carriage..and has a slightly whimsical air.

Measuring 14 3/4" x 11 1/2" it has a ragged lower edge, is missing the top left corner and has two very old (and taped) tears (top right and mid left)...which would not be noticed once framed under glass. There is printing in French verso and the over-all condition is only fair..but it is a very unique, rare, interesting and arresting engraving and would look marvellous framed.
