Rudolf Hametovich Nureyev was born in 1938 in Irkutsk, Russia S.F.S.R. and he died in 1993 in Paris, France. Nuryev'e a ballet dancer whose suspended leaps and fast turns were often compared to Vaslav Nijinsky’s legendary feats. He was a flamboyant performer and a charismatic celebrity who revived the prominence of male ballet roles and significantly widened the audience for ballet.

Of Tatar descent, Nureyev began his ballet studies at 11, left school at 15, and supported himself by dancing. At 17 he entered the Leningrad Ballet School, where he was taught by Aleksandr Pushkin. He was an outstanding but rebellious student, refusing to join the Komsomol; a communist youth organization, disobeying curfew regulations, and learning English privately.

After graduating in 1958, he became soloist with the Leningrad Ballet and danced leading roles with its touring company. While in Paris with the Kirov Ballet in June 1961, Nureyev eluded Soviet security men at the airport and requested asylum in France. He said later that the rigidly organized Soviet ballet had limited his opportunities to dance frequently and to perform in a variety of roles.

This studio photo from the late Sixties shows Nuryev mid-leap in his lead role in Vivance . This amazing black and white shot is from a volume of legendary performance artists and dancers published in the Seventies.

"Rudolph Nureyev" measures 8" x 10.75" overall with a half inch wide white border. He's printed on heavy quality paper with a soft matte finish She's clean, smooth and flat with firm edges. There's another in-text photo illustration of dancers on the reverse side.
