Rosina by John Singer Sargent. Painted in an impressionistic style in 1878 and in a smaller format of 35cm x 18cm (14in x 7in). Rosina Ferrara was from Capri and became a favourite muse of the artist. This painting has Rosina dancing the Tarantella in 1878 yet it could have been painted yesterday. A timeless piece.

Fiery Dance by Andrew Atroshemko (1965)
Joseph Loughborough drawing- most of his work is pretty dark for my taste but I was drawn to this one. A character on the verge of... inspirataional for use in relaying a turn in plot, a change of mind, about to do something drastic, etc. This is haunting and yet while it is a bit disturbing, the idea of an open top head with frenetic lines could be used to good effect for a character in a fairy tale
