Description

Bust of celebrated dancer and choreographer, Martha Graham, made by Joseph Konzal. Created in the 1950s and comprised of a painted bronze patina on plaster mounted to a wooden base. Konzal was a recognized sculptor who designed busts of other notable figures between 1930 and 1960 including Walt Whitman and Frank Lloyd Wright. The piece is signed by the artist on the back.

The legendary dancer developed the “Graham Technique” which reshaped American Modern dance. Graham was the first dancer to perform at the White House and was presented with the highest civilian honor, The Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction. The tireless giant of the stage danced for over seventy years and choreographed performances right up to her death. Her iconic status was made official with her entry into the National Museum of Dance’s Hall of Fame, and the National Women’s Hall of Fame. Graham was also named “Dancer of The Century” by Time magazine.
