Note
  • Legend: Telle est la célèbre Auretti, / L'ame du Bal, et de la Danse, / A qui le Ciel a departi / Le don de voler en cadance.
  • In this undated print, Auretti appears to be younger than the subject of Scotin's 1745 London print. Depicts Anne (or possibly Janneton) Auretti, full length to slight left, head inclined to slight right, arms outstretched, index fingers and thumbs touching, left leg extended to side. Wearing neckband, paniered décollété ball gown, heeled shoes. An outdoor setting, trees in background.
  • Cf. Winter, Marian Hannah. The Pre-Romantic Ballet, London, 1974, p. 128. Reproduction.
