Original etching of Niles performing at Radio City Music Hall in ca. 1934 in Eastern dress, with ornamental headband, bracelets, and armlets, holding finger cymbals; three musicians are performing seated behind her
NYPL b12135900. Niles, a dancer and choreographer who specialized in the dances of foreign cultures, performed both in the United States and Europe. She amassed a notable library together with her husband, Serge Leslie, described in a 4-volume catalogue, A Bibliography of the Dance Collection of Doris Niles & Serge Leslie. "Troy Kinney was most notable for his works portraying dance performers, fanciful subjects, and classically styled nudes. He worked with dancers, including Ruth St. Denis, Anna Pavlova, and Sophie Pflanz among others. His artistic works are part of the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, the Library of Congress, and many others... Perhaps Troy Kinney's greatest legacy is in his contributions in the area of dance. He co-authored with his wife the books "Social Dancing of Today" and "The Dance: Its Place in Art and Life", for which he traveled throughout the world to study various dance styles. It remains to this day one of the most comprehensive works on the subject." Wikipedia.. Image size 266 x 190 mm., sheet size 385 x 310 mm. Signed in full by the artist in pencil just below platemark at lower left. Printed on wove paper with watermark "J. Green & Son."
