Portrait of Marie-Adeline Plunkett, 1854
*Marie Adeline Plunkett was a star of the Romantic ballet. She made her first appearance in the ballet company of her Majesty's Theatre, London in 1843. She was discharged from the company as a result of an incident during a performance involving another dancer who was her rival for the affections of the Earl of Pembroke. In this painting, Buckner based Adeline's pose on the classical statue of Mercury in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence.
