BOX 1-3 Photographs, 1983-2003
This series consists of photographs, contact sheets, negatives, and slides of Eleanor King dating between 1983 and 2003, with the majority from 1983 to 1984. Many of these photographs taken by Jane Grossenbacher depict King dancing in Northwest Spirit Dance (1945) and The Well-Tempered Dancer (1967). These works exhibit the influence of Native American dance traditions and the music of J. S. Bach, respectively. Other photographs include a small number of headshots and dancing with modern dancer and historian Andrea Seidel. In addition, this series contains 21 high-quality digital prints of the Eleanor King Portfolio held at the Harwood Museum of Art. The contact sheets, negatives, and slides are numerous and represent these and other related photographs.
