19th Century Prints, Contemporary, Linocut, Lithograph, Past/Present

Past/Present: Dancing

Two complimentary prints of dancing for the Past/Present post. It is always interesting to see how printmakers convey movement in a fixed image. I think both achieved impressive compositions filled with the energy, fluidity, and poise of two dancers. Enjoy!
