Michael worked with Edward Watson, over several months in 2015, in his rehearsal studios at the Royal Opera House, to create this wonderful portrait of one of The Royal Ballet’s leading principal dancers. Visit Michael’s, Edward Watson page to see more about this project and the images of the finished sculpture.
Michael Talbot’s first sculpture in his collaboration with The Royal Ballet was a portrait sculpture of principal dancer Edward Watson. This brief video shows Michael and Edward at the launch of the collection and some of the modelling sessions.
Michael Talbot launched The Royal Ballet Collection at the Royal Opera House in London in January 2016. One of the pieces in the collection was an ‘animated’ portrait of Principal Dancer Lauren Cuthbertson.
