For some American artists, an appreciation of dance informed even the way they applied paint to canvas, carved a sculpture, or framed a photograph. The artists did not merely represent dance, they were inspired to think about how Americans move, present themselves to one another, and experience time. Their artwork, in turn, affords insights into the cultural, social, and political moments in which it was created, whether depicting a jig, the cakewalk, or the fandango. Fourteen essays analyze the ways dance influenced many of America's most prominent artists, including Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Cecilia Beaux, Isamu Noguchi, Aaron Douglas, Malvina Hoffman, Edward Steichen, Arthur Davies, and Joseph Cornell.
