"This beautiful book showcases two great American modernists."--Dance Gazette

"Ann Cooper Albright has made a clear contribution to the scholarship on both Abraham Walkowitz and Isadora Duncan. As Walkowitz's dealer for decades, I found great new insight into the connection between the drawings and the dance."--Virginia Zabriskie

"Walkowitz's undulating line compounds the rhythm through improvisational images that slip like nymphs across the page unfettered. (H)e drew thousands of images of her ritualistically throughout his life, as though his hand was an extension of her body, his gesture her movement through time. The synergy that Albright creates between Stein's literary cadence and the musical sensation of Walkowitz's visual forms conveys the motion of the dance in a manner immediate and sensate."--Giovanna L. Constantini, Leonardo Review

"Brilliant. Beautiful. Important. Ann Cooper Albright's new book is a feast for the senses and intellect. In text and image, the book showcases Isadora Duncan's influence and interconnection to the great modernists, including Gertrude Stein, Rodin, Kadinsky, and of course, Walkowitz. This book will stimulate your artistic sensibilities."--Lori Belilove, director of the Isadora Duncan Dance Foundation

"The ideas integral to this book are how a visionary dancer, Isadora Duncan, and a visual artist, Abraham Walkowitz, and a writer/feminist, Gertrude Stein, intersected in time and place and how that convergence can enhance your experience. (I)t is a nice tribute to all."--Maine Antique Digest

"From pillar to post, this book is a feast. Additionally, in its presentation of human capital as the ritual food among artists, this book extends an open invitation to explore dialogs and exchanges of creativity and life force."--Bernadine Jennings, Attitude: The Dancers' Magazine

"This beautiful book showcases two great American modernists."--Dance Gazette

"a pleasure to read and to gaze at. The book is a wonderful crossover between dance and art, which an enthusiast of either would be happy to own."--Karen Barr, Dance International
