This drawing is entitled, "Tanzerin (Dancer)" by Vaslow Nijinsky (Russian, 1917-18), and is composed of chalk, pastel and pencil on paper.
The use of the curly, curving lines shows and depicts movement of the human body through space in the art of dance. I believe by using white chalk, it created an airiness and lightness of the dancer's movements, the black pencil creating the defining lines of the arm movements and her garments; her free-flowing hair is the yellow shade, the coral line could represent the outline of her costume or dress's movement.
