Several years ago I was attending a Renoir exhibit in the Royal Academy of Arts in London.  At the same time, they had a loop of the silent film of the dancer Loie Fuller dancing on display.  The film was mesmerizing.  Why do I remember it today, because I recently stumbled on an article on Loie Fuller.  

Fuller was one of the pioneers of modern dance.  She started her career in vaudeville in Chicago.  Loie developed her routine using improvisation, she created the Serpentine Dance.  After not getting the recognition at home, she moved to Europe.  In France, she became the embodiment of the Art Nouveau movement.  This short tinted black and white silent film embodies the spirit of the art movement of the time.
