Vera Clark was an English dancer who joined the Ballets Russes in 1924 under the direction of Serge Diaghilev. Vera’s name was Russianized to Vera Savina. She married the Principal and choreographer Léonide Massine in 1926 and became Principal herself in 1927. This work shows Vera dressed as the sylph from one of the oldest surviving romantic ballets, La Sylphide.
