About

Ellen Terry was a famous British actress and author of the book The Russian Ballet published in 1913, which featured illustrations by Pamela Coleman Smith. The book was a tribute to the Ballets Russes, a famous Russian ballet company founded by Sergei Diaghilev.

The illustrations in Terry's book were based on the performances of the Ballets Russes, which were renowned for their innovative choreography, costumes, and set designs. Smith's illustrations depicted the dancers in elaborate costumes, performing dramatic poses and leaps.

The book was published during a time when the Ballets Russes were gaining popularity in Europe and North America, and it helped to introduce the company to a wider audience. Terry's text praised the dancers' grace and athleticism, as well as the artistic vision of Diaghilev and his collaborators.

Smith's illustrations in The Russian Ballet were rendered in a style similar to that of her tarot deck, with flowing lines and intricate details. Her use of decorative borders and frames around each image also reflected her interest in the decorative arts.
