Our classic model, but in a trendy, cropped version.
For this Jouy pattern *, we drew six dancers and three ballerinas dressed in ballet costumes from the time of Louis XIV. And we let them perform noble dances to the glory of this monarch, who did so much for the development of ballet. Cupids bless their performances, scattering flowers among the dancers.
* – monochrome prints usually imaging pastoral scenes; appeared in France in the XVIII th century
