Description: Artist: LEONETTO CAPPIELLO (1875-1942) Size: 47 1/4 x 63 in./120 x 160 cm Imp. Devambez, Paris "The haughty sensuality of this Spanish dancer is captured with sunny aplomb by Cappiello, featuring the legendary Conchita Supervia (1895-1936) in the title role of [Franz Lehár's] Frasquitta, coincidentally the only light-opera appearance ever made by the sultry diva. The featherweight musical indulgence revolves around gypsy fascination, unjust accusation and, of course, eventual love (Cappiello/Rennert, p. 307). All copies of this image appear without text.
