Gift of Mrs. Henry A. Everett for the Dorothy Burnham Everett Memorial Collection 1923.725
The dance that inspired this elegant statuette was performed to the "Glowworm" music by German composer Paul Lincke (1866-1946). It gave Hoffman an opportunity to record not only Pavlova's graceful form, but also the legendary ease of her movements, the perfect positioning of her feet, and the broad sweep of her arms.
