Great British ballerina who enjoyed an acclaimed partnership with Rudolf Nureyev.

Fonteyn married Robert Arias (1918-1990), then Panamanian Ambassador to London, in 1955.

Arias was a compulsive womaniser who was later paralysed when an enraged husband tried to shoot him dead (the incident was later “cleaned up” when it was claimed that the shooting had been the work of a political assassin.)
This is an exceptionally pretty close-up black and white vintage photograph (5.5" x 3.5") by Anthony, of Fonteyn in Giselle, signed across the image in blue fountain pen ink. In very good condition.
