Commentary
"Untitled (Human Rhythm)" bears an unmistakable resemblance to the work "Untitled (Biomorphic Composition)," 1916. At the bottom of the drawing are three arched hill forms; towering above these are three figures rendered as sculptural forms. Walkowitz referred to drawings of this type, which he began to produce in 1918, as "human rhythms - perpetual movement interwoven."

Exhibition
