Iconography and Dance Research

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  07 March 2019


1. A PERSONAL NOTE. While, during the last fifty years, the relation between music and the visual arts has become a not uncommon subject of scholarship, the same cannot be said of dance and the visual arts. A glance through the many volumes of Dance Chronicle yields almost no articles on the subject, and a publication like Dance history research: perspective from related arts and disciplines (1970)—surely a title which leads one to expect a discussion of dance iconography—does not contain anything related to the subject, not even in the contribution by the art historian: he does not mention dance with a word!
