I was excited to see this today on Google, esp. since it moves! Visit the link to see it in action!


Here is the story behind the doodle.

I always wished I could have seen her dance. I generally don’t care too much for contemporary ballet, but there is something about Martha Graham that is incredibly graceful and powerful at the same time. Its strange, I am not even sure I like the type of dance that she introduced to the world. But I feel the same way about Picasso: I like some of his work, but I am not sure about it and its effects on art today.

And I like the way her costumes would have really long, flowing skirts to catch her movements.
