In the 1940s, painter John Heliker produced several portraits and sketches of Merce Cunningham, the celebrated dancer and choreographer. These images are exquisite and have never before been released. Click here to view a slideshow of the exclusive artwork, all courtesy of the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation. And click here to read a wonderful essay by Jed Perl that helps to put the work in context.
