Note of intentEtienne de Silhouette, a financial inspector under Louis XV, gave his name to the portraits of the face’s silhouette, probably because his reforms tended only to leave taxpayers the silhouette of their fortune. This solo is a miniature through which the silhouette of the dancer Vaslav Nijinski passes. A silhouette portrait cut in the Spirit of the Rose, Petrouchka, Narcisse and the Afternoon of a faun.
