Carter was fascinated by the commedia dell'arte, believing that, in contrast to the vulgarised popular representation, its protagonists were part of a profound and rich tradition. In 1916 in exhibited a series of prints on the subject, with accompanying notes. Of  A Dance - Desire he wrote: "A design for a ballet pantomime on a very large stage. With hands holding off but yet inviting, the figure in the black velvet dress dances away on her toes from the advances of Pierrot who follows ardently, leaving forlorn and weeping Colombine curled in a heap against the wall".
