Australian Ballet. Drawings by Trevor Clare

Adelaide, Frank E. Cork, [1944].

Large quarto, 23 pages with 8 vignette illustrations and 11 tipped-in monochrome plates (one in colour) by Trevor Clare.

Stiffened overlapping red silver-speckled wrappers (with a twelfth large monochrome plate mounted on the front cover); edges lightly bumped; a fine copy.

'The drawings and sketches in this book are not intended to be a comprehensive record. They are selected at random from the young artist's typical back-stage impressions formed in the fascinating atmosphere of wings and back-stage'.

Offered together with a large pastel drawing, captioned in the image 'Joan Gadsden [in] Swan Lake', signed and dated 'Trevor Clare 44'. Mounted and glazed, in a contemporary frame (visible image size 525 × 385 mm); although the acidic matt and mount have discoloured the artwork, the overall condition is very good. The drawing is reproduced in the book (tipped in on page [9], with the caption 'Swan Lake in chalk' printed below the image). Trevor Clare was a well-known South Australian artist and art teacher; born in 1917, he was active through to the 1980s at least. A few related catalogues and newspaper cuttings are also present.
