Capture, The Baltimore Museum of Art, 2016

Movement is a central theme of this page. A 1965 cast of Auguste Rodin’s Dance Movement, Pas de duex B is prominently featured here, as Koch uncharacteristically leaves the sculpture whole rather than focusing on a detail. The representation of other pairs and exuberant gestures enhances this rhythmic theme.

Each composition in the series of which this work is a part, is comprised of multiple drawing studies from individual museum collections. These compositions display enlightening affinities between various art objects and reveal Koch's keen eye. Through the drawings we are also given insight into Koch’s influences, process and the development of her own iconography. Making their world premiere at Picture Room, these drawings are a rare window into the artist’s private journals.
