Martha Graham: Portrait of the Lady as an Artist

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1966. First Edition. INSCRIBED by Martha Graham to the late, legendary film director Sidney Lumet at the half-title page: "For Sidney Lumet / Martha Graham."

Sidney Lumet's astounding catalog of films slightly predicted (and later joined) the work of the great filmmakers of the 1970s, with a laundry list of five-star achievements that includes "Dog Day Afternoon," "The Pawnbroker," "Serpico," "The Verdict," and "Network." Additionally signed by authors Leroy Leatherman and Martha Swope on the title page. A tremendous association, and a lovely copy of this important, beautifully constructed document of Graham's early work as a pioneer of modern American dance.

Fine in a bright, Near Fine dust jacket.
