Now, in this gorgeous collection of stunning images, you can see and compare how two great artists depicted the body and movements of one of the worlds most admired and best loved dancers -- the fearless, fabulous, free-spirit, the barefoot dancer Isadora Duncan.Arnold Genthe was the first to capture her gorgeous grace in a series of extremely moving still photographs.

But when she danced, the nobility of her gestures could make it into something of superb perfection and divine loveliness.”Illustrator Abraham Walkowitz was mesmerized by the incomparable Miss Duncan when they met at Auguste Rodins Paris studio. He devoted himself to capturing the natural beauty of her movements in a series of colorful sketches. I never had her pose, he declared, I just watched the movement. She was a Muse. She had no laws. She didnt dance according to the rules. She created. Her body was music.See what they saw - feel what they felt -- get this gorgeous collection and enjoy it now!No Kindle required!
