Art Imitates Life, 1945



If the cardboard radio shown here looks vaguely familiar, then you are a faithful follower of this blog. The photo on which this was inspired appeared in Life Magazine on December 11, 1944, and on this blog a few months ago.


The Life photo inspired modern dance students in Westchester County, New York, to compose a ballet based upon the photos in the Life article. This rendition appeared in the same magazine 70 years ago today, May 28, 1945.
