Constance Anne Parker (1921 – 2016) was a sculptor, portrait painter and as we can see here, a highly skilled print-maker. Les Sylphides is a short, non-narrative ballet set to the piano music of Frédéric Chopin. It was chosen and orchestrated by Alexander Glazunov. The ballet is frequently cited as the first to be simply about mood and dance. It has no plot but instead consists of several white-clad sylphs dancing in the moonlight with the “poet” or “young man” dressed in white tights and a black tunic.
Anne Parker has focussed on the white-clad sylphs, but the lights and audience play a big part in this composition.
The print is in good condition and has had a false border added for mounting. The frame is modern with decorative moulding and has some light wear but is in good condition and ready to hang. The title from the original backing sheet has been saved and included with the print.
