Anonymous, ‘Ballet Aerien’, Rennert’s Gallery

The American singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson entitled his breakthrough 1968 album "Aerial Ballet" after a circus act created by his grandparents, back in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This is that circus act (advertised for a Paris performance): a flitting, floating fantasy of butterfly-girls, with a costume and design sense after Loïe Fuller.
