Modern Gestures
Abraham Walkowitz Draws Isadora Duncan Dancing
Wesleyan University Press
Ann Cooper Albright, 2010
96 pages 60 in color

This small, beautifully Illustrated book showcases the wok of two great American modernists, the painter Abraham Walkowitz and the dancer Isadora Duncan. In this book, Ann Cooper Albright weaves literary theory, art criticism and dance history into a fluid kinetic narrative in order to explore how Walkowitz's drawings realize Duncan's dancing on paper. "Modern Gestures" reproduces over sixty watercolors of this unique oeuvre, many of which have never before been published.
