 Starting at 9am Join us this auction day for the auction, and we are featuring Violette Verdy estate with French paintings, Original Louis Icart with Windmill mark and studio marks, French books and lots of wonderful items. 

Violette Verdy, a French-born ballerina who became one of New York City Ballet’s most acclaimed stars by bringing her deep musicality, effervescent presence and theatricals plotless ballets, died on Monday in Bloomington, Ind. She was 82.

Her cousin Annick Horville-Chateaureynaud said she died after a brief illness. Ms. Verdy lived in Bloomington and taught at Indiana University there. She had earlier directed the Paris Opera Ballet and the Boston Ballet.

When Balanchine invited Ms. Verdy to join his 10-year-old company in 1958, even she was surprised. Her personal style of inflected dancing — marked by accents, technical brio and hints of occasional drama — seemed antithetical to the straightforward pure-movement style that Balanchine promoted in City Ballet as choreographer and artistic director.
