Early modernist Abraham Walkowitz is best known for his watercolor scenes of simplified figures in contemporary settings like city streets and beaches. In 1906 he traveled to Paris to enroll at the Académie Julian, where he studied developments such as Cubism and the spiritual expressions of Wassily Kandinsky. At the studio of Auguste Rodin he encountered the free-form style of dancer Isadora Duncan, who would become a frequent subject of his work and an inspiration for his movement studies. The kinetic energy captured in these works can also been seen in the cityscapes and abstractions he created upon returning to New York, where he joined photographer Alfred Stieglitz’s avant-garde 291 Gallery and was a part of the ground-breaking 1913 Armory Show.
