About

Abraham Walkowitz, Untitled (Figurative Abstraction of Isadora Duncan #4), pen and ink, 1918. Signed in ink, dated in pencil, bottom center. A fine, spontaneous, figurative abstraction, on cream, wove notepaper, in excellent condition. Provenance: Ex. Collection Judy T. Stark, a friend of the artist who danced with Isadora Duncan. ABOUT THIS WORK Abraham Walkowitz (1878-1965) studied at the Cooper Union, the Educational Alliance in New York City, the National Academy of Design, and the Art Students League. He was closely affiliated with the Stieglitz circle and the internationally renowned 291 Gallery. His work is represented in virtually every major American museum. Walkowitz met Isadora Duncan in the sculptor Auguste Rodin’s studio during a trip to France in 1906. After their introduction, Walkowitz watched her dance, bare-foot and free-flowing, at a private salon the following day. The experience inspired Walkowitz to such an extent that he went on to create numerous gestural renderings of her dancing, principally from memory, throughout his lifetime. About Duncan, Walkowitz recalled, “She was a Muse. She had no laws. She didn’t dance according to rules. She created. She was like music. When she moved, it was like the sound of violins; she was the Walt Whitman of women.”
