A carriage conveying Fevvers rushes through a deep Russian winter. Pen and watercolour.
This is the same image done in two very different ways. The first was created using mainly ink and watercolour while the second is a woodcut. It is a depiction of Walser, a reporter who joins the troupe and from whose point of view the story is largly told. These images were heavily inspired by the Russian art at the turn of the century.
In this picture Mignon sits forlornly in a bath tub just glimpsed through the half open door. The image is an etching using a method called aquatint.
In the circus ring, as the audience watches, the searing strains of music stirring the air, Mignon waltzes slowly with a tiger.
Fevvers takes to the air inside the Russian theatre, her wings unfurling as she ascends to the Gods.
