Abraham Walkowitz (1878-1965) was a significant but neglected contributor to Twentieth Century American modernism. As a key member of the artists associated with Alfred Stieglitz' important 291 Gallery, his investigations of various modernist avenues took him to the forefront of American abstraction. While he is often remembered for his many drawings of Isadora Duncan's dance, Walkowitz' total achievement covers far greater ground. This cultural study of Walkowitz' life and art by leading international educator Theodore W. Eversole explores the long career and lasting impact of this forgotten pioneer in modernism.
