More Information

In 1932 Kubinyi founded the Cleveland Print Makers, an artist’s cooperative that included a Print-a-Month program. This image of women performing the saraband, a stately Spanish dance, was distributed to around 200 Print-a-Month subscribers in July 1932. The model was Kubinyi’s sister-in-law Eleanor Buchla, who founded a modern dance troupe in Cleveland in the 1930s. Artists Honoré Guilbeau and Dorothy Rutka, whose works are in this exhibition, were also members of the dance group.
