Product Description


“By exploring the continual dialogue between art and dance, Udall not only probes dance’s own cultural meanings, she also casts new light on visual artists’ persistent reliance on dance to invent new forms, revitalize technique and style, and better understand the human body and movement.”—Andrea Harris, editor of Before, Between, and Beyond: Three Decades of Dance Writing

“Dance and American Art is a visual and intellectual delight: a lavishly illustrated and eloquently written overview that traces the longstanding fascination America’s artists have had with dance from the nation’s beginnings to the present day. From pictures of Shaker religious practices, minstrelsy, and folk dancing, to paintings, sculptures, and photographs of modern performance arts, this far-reaching study admirably positions dance in America’s visual landscape and simultaneously accounts for its meaning on social, cultural, and political terms. Highly recommended.”—Erika Doss, author of Twentieth-Century American Art
