Abraham Walkowitz Ink Drawing of Ballet Dancer Isadora Duncan in Yellow



A fine drawing in ink and watercolor on paper of the modernist dancer Isadora Duncan by Abraham Walkowitz. Walkowitz (1878-1965) had an intimate artistic relationship with Duncan. He drew her in dance literally thousands of times. This image is a free flowing sketch of her in a yellow dress set on a stage or dance floor. The drawing is colored with a watercolor wash. As is typical with these drawings, there are a few shallow folds to the paper here and there and slight roughness and losses to the paper edges. The drawing is framed in a modern gold toned frame. We have not observed outside the frame. Sight width: ca 7 3/4 in. Sight height: ca. 9 3/4 in. Frame width: ca. 11 3/4 in. Frame height: ca. 15 in. Items purchased from this dealer must delight you. Purchases may be returned for any reason for a period of 7 days.
