1. Anna Pavlova (1911). John Lavery (Irish, 1856-1941). Oil on canvas. Glasgow Museums: Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

    The Observer critic wrote on 16 April 1911: “Mr. Lavery’s portrait of the Russian dancer, Anna Pavlova, caught in a moment of graceful, weightless movement … Her miraculous, feather-like flight, which seems to defy the law of gravitation.”
