Description

Philip Evergood was an observer of society. His works were largely commentary on the challenges of modern life. And no more so in any work than in this one, which portrays the dance contests popular in the 1920s, when contestants would—literally—kill themselves in dance contests because of their great desperation for money.

A copy of this important print is held by the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

This work is unframed but professional framing is available at discounted cost with little delay. Please select from the framing options or contact us if you wish to discuss the framing of the work. We frame exclusively with conservation-grade materials and put the work behind 99% UV-filtering art glass or Plexiglass.
