Arthur B. Davies was the driving force behind the 1913 Armory Show which introduced Americans to radical European abstract art, but his own style remained representational throughout his career. This tapestry of the artist’s signature lyrical nudes dancing in the landscape was one of 36 tapestries he designed and had woven by the famous Gobelins factories in France. Only six were sold during his lifetime; the rest were later destroyed in a fire.
