This image of dancer holding up her skirts was designed to adorn a cover for sheet music by Martin Shaw, a composer with whom Craig often cooperated at this period. They worked on Henry Purcell's opera Dido & Aeneas, at the Hampstead Conservatoire in 1900, a Purcell derived production titled The Masque of Love in 1901, and Handel's Acis and Galatea at the Great Queen Street Theatre in 1902. Each had souvenir programs which Craig decorated with color woodcuts, but the present image was created using color lithography.
