This painting was made by Cremer in the autumn of 1958, when he lived in Paris for the first time and was working in the Rue Santeuil. The ballerina is a recurring theme in the work of Cremer, as his mother (‘a temperamentful Hungarian’) was a ballerina. The ballerina depicted here however was his girlfriend, Astrid.
