(21x25cm) Vintage silver gelatin photograph of the dancer and choreographer Martha Graham in her commission from the composer Paul Hindemith, Herodiade. The image shows Graham in front of a sculptural set designed by the American artist Isamu Nogochi. The photograph has an old crease, top right, and a 3mm closed tear along the bottom margin, not affecting image. Labelled in pencil to verso. A striking image which commemorates Graham's ballet which premiered in October 1944, sharing the program with Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring and Darius Milhaud's Jeux du printemps. Graham has been described as a theatrical revolutionary, an 'innovator who became a legend in her lifetime' who exerted an influence in her own field that was comparable with figures like Picasso and Stravinsky.
