Biography (note)
  • The French painter and lithographer Eugène Lami frequently made illustrations of nineteenth-century Parisian life and society, of which this may be one. He is probably best remembered in the dance world as the costume designer for Filippo Taglioni's groundbreaking ballet La sylphide (1832), in which Marie Taglioni, in the title role, wore the long white bell-shaped tutu that became the uniform of the Romantic ballet.
