In this painting, Buckner based Adeline's pose on the classical statue of Mercury in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence

Mademoiselle Cerito, in the ballet of 'Alma', 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Mademoiselle Cerito, in the ballet of "Alma", 1844. Creator: Unknown

Mademoiselle Cerito, in the ballet of "Alma", 1844. Italian ballerina Fanny Cerito performing at Her Majesty's Theatre in London: ...Cerito...not only turns her own head a merveille, but those also of all her beholders. Never was such a feat so marvellously performed. It is quite Circean - a vortex - a maelstroom of beauty, and whirls everybody into its enchantment as surely as ever did any syren's stragem of old. And yet Fanny Cerito means but to delight, not to ensnare or injure'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

New pas de quatre...at Her Majesty's Theatre, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

New pas de quatre...at Her Majesty's Theatre, 1845. Creator: Unknown

New pas de quatre, by Mademoiselles Taglioni, C. Grisi, L. Grahn, and Cerito, at Her Majesty's Theatre, 1845. Ballet on the London stage: ...nothing could be more calculated for effect than the appearance, at the same time, of these four dancers, each possessing a style so peculiarly her own, and each attaining in that style the highest degree of perfection. The buoyant joyousness of Cerito; the stately elegance - the classical poses of Grahn; the graceful archness of Carlotta Grisi; the simplicity - the poetry - the intellectuality of Taglioni's dancing; all these form contrasts of a most perfect and most delightful order...Taglioni, after this year abandons her throne to her fair rivals, who, excellent as they are in their art, have hardly yet learnt to do it so much justice, or to raise it to so high the highest possible standard of excellence is raised for the public taste'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
