Footnotes

  • This mask was bought directly from H. J. Hatfield by the vendor. The company records have been destroyed and as yet the artist of the mask remains unknown.
    Through discussion with the V&A, another known mask exists in their collection. The V&A Museum also has the plaster cast model for the mask (Museum number S.549-1978). A further bronze casting of the mask is held at The Royal Ballet School Collections which has been on display in White Lodge Museum.

    Exhibitions: This mask was included in the exhibition 'Anna Pavlova at Ivy House' in 2012.
