Loves Greetings to y'all! MADAME ALEXANDER'S 13" 1991 Pierrot Clown #1558 dancing with this stunning mint in box pink Elise Ballerina with a Marybel face — infatuated and floating on a cloud of marshmallow hearts — cherry flavored of all things!
Pierrot is the endearing, but forever sad and pining in love clown. Made fun of, tricked, forever in love and always loyal. For centuries his interpretation has evolved over time and by nations, as they but their stamp on his image and character. A favorite figure in literature, art, plays, poetry, pantomime, ballet and even a few rock stars. Originating with Italian roots, our buffoonish anti-hero struggles for a place in life.
Arriving relatively late in America, it was the late nineteenth century that Pierrot became the adopted image of a clash of changes running through the country. The fin-de-siècle world in which this Pierrot represented was clearly at odds with the reigning American Realist and Naturalist movement. In the last year of the century, Pierrot appeared in a Russian ballet, Harlequin's Millions, its dancers the members of St. Petersburg's Imperial Ballet. This would set the stage for many more productions featuring Pierrot - strongly reinforcing the ballet connection.
