This was my Archibald Entry 2020 of the beautiful Dame Lucette Aldous, prima ballerina. She danced on the world stage for many years and has achieved an Order of Australia.
Although my entry was unsuccessful I am very grateful to have had the opportunity of painting 'Lucette'. Her stories of her life on stage were truly amazing. Lunettes favourite memories are of Rudolf Nureuv, whom she partnered as principal dancer, and her role model and associate, Margot Fonteyn. Both are pictured here as she reflects over her life. Her passion for the arts is inspiring.
