"All arts--dance, painting, music, sculpture, or writing--are the elimination of wasted motion in favor of the concise declaration."
~Isadora Duncan (1877-1927)
Isadora Duncan's genius inspired other dancers to create their own individual styles. She also inspired painters, photographers,
and other artists who tried to catch the essence of movement in their art. Rejected by American critics for her modernization of classical dance forms, she moved to the Soviet Union and continued to perform in Europe.
“My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.”
~Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961)
"He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish."--first line of Ernest Hemingway's Nobel Award winning novel.
