Isadora Duncan “A Living Sculpture”

I_duncan Musée Bourdelle presents an ambitious exposition devoted to Isadora Duncan, one of the sources of inspiration for Antoine Bourdelle. The exposition is divided into five parts recreating the intellectual and artistic context of an epoch and celebrating this pioneer dancer. It traces the tumultuous life and career of Isadora Duncan through photographs, works of art and documents. The first part introduces us to the salon of Madame de Saint-Marceaux where Duncan took her first steps as a dancer. In the second, works by her contemporaries Antoine Bourdelle, Auguste Rodin, José Clarà, Rik Wouters, Jules Grandjouan, André Dunoyer de Segonzac and Abraham Walkowitz illustrate Isadora’s revolutionary art. The third part explores the fascination with Greece that Duncan shared with her brother Raymond, while the fourth is devoted to photographs of Duncan. Finally, the exhibition concludes with an examination of the relationship between Isadora Duncan and Antoine Bourdelle and the works of art that it inspired.
