Wharton Esherick Rhythms Opening Woodcut $4,800

Wharton Esherick hand carved the image printed on this woodcut in 1922. Depicting dancers in motion, rendered in black and white, it was used as the cover illustration for a 1923 Ruth Doing Camp for Rhythmics brochure. Esherick and his family were introduced to the dance camp by his close friend Sherwood Anderson.

Philadelphia Museum of Art described the woodcut like this: "This image might be seen in two ways. It could be a group of dancers crouched in a tight cluster, facing outward. Or it could represent the sequential movements of a single dancer, expressed through repeated views of their body. In either interpretation, the vigorous lines radiating from the figures emphasize the energy and dynamism of dance."
