For Duncan, "Life is the root, Art is the flower." This book attempts to distill the essence of that flower through photographs, sketches, and portraits. The result is a virtual Duncan museum and art gallery. As Agnes de Mille notes in the foreword, "not one foot of film exists of this great dancing, of our greatest original, and the pictures in this book... are therefore important." The trifold text spans Duncan's life (1878-1927) and career, including her childhood and early years as a dancer, her attempts at establishing a school, the tragic loss of her children, her later years, and her untimely death. This work will be accompanied by a traveling exhibition, which opens in Moscow and is slated to travel to Paris and New York. Although words and pictures can never fully capture the art that is dance, this rich and detailed book comes very close. For all dance and performing arts collections.
