Washington Monument Stone Commissioned by Meade Brothers

National Portrait Gallery
In December 1854, the Photographic and Fine Art Journal advised its readers that: "THE MESSRS MEADE are preparing a block of marble for the Washington Monument, to contain the following inscription: ‘—TO WASHINGTON, An humble tribute from two disciples of Daguerre.’" Documented in this daguerreotype, the brothers’ commemorative stone was destined for the monument to George Washington that was then under construction in the nation’s capital. When it was later installed within the obelisk’s interior, the Meade Brothers’ marble tribute joined nearly two hundred memorial stones presented by individuals, societies, cities, states, and foreign countries to honor Washington.

Pauline Koner

National Portrait Gallery
Born New York City

Admired for the intensity, precision, and speed of her movements, dancer Pauline Koner started wowing audiences in her late teens. The daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants, she first took classes from Michel Fokine and later studied with choreographers Michio Ito and Yeichi Nimura. It was Doris Humphrey’s mentorship, however, that had the most palpable impact on her career. In 1946, Humphrey and José Limón invited Koner to perform with the José Limón Dance Company, for which she created some of her most memorable roles. Koner later taught at schools around the world and drew acclaim for her course “Elements of Performing.” She proved the perfect subject for photographer Lotte Jacobi, a master at capturing movement. For this photograph, Jacobi combined one negative of her subject dancing with one of her darkroom experiments, adding swirls to accentuate the lines of the dancer’s powerful movement.

Nacida en la Ciudad de Nueva York

Admirada por la intensidad, precisión y rapidez de sus movimientos, la bailarina Pauline Koner comenzó a impresionar al público desde su adolescencia. Hija de inmigrantes judíos rusos, primero fue alumna de Michel Fokine y después de los coreógrafos Michio Ito y Yeichi Nimura. Sin embargo, fue la tutela de Doris Humphrey la que tuvo el impacto más palpable en su carrera. En 1946, Humphrey y José Limón invitaron a Koner a unirse a la Compañía de Danza José Limón, para la cual creó algunos de sus roles más memorables. Tiempo después se dedicó a impartir clases internacionalmente, siendo muy elogiada por su curso “Elementos de la interpretación”. Koner resultó la modelo perfecta para Lotte Jacobi, fotógrafa experta en la captación del movimiento. En esta obra Jacobi combinó un negativo de su modelo en plena danza con uno de sus experimentos al momento del revelado, añadiendo trazos curvos para acentuar las líneas del enérgico movimiento de la bailarina.
