Take a look at the expressive body across cultures. On view are jazzy watercolors of Isadora Duncan by Abraham Walkowitz and gauzy photographs of her daughter, Irma, by Arnold Genthe; bold ukiyo-e prints of entertainers and Kabuki actors, such as Lion Dancer and Young Woman and Boy by Suzuki Harunobu; an 1889 cabaret poster by Jules Chéret, Nouveau cirque, La Foire de Seville; Arthur Murphy’s Ballet Dancers #5; an early eighteenth-century Indian drawing depicting Rajput entertainers; and more.
