Rainbow-colored portrait of dancer / choreographer Agnes de Mille, in old age, shown seated, wearing a dress and pearls; when viewer stands to right of hologram, she is shown in profile (her right side visible) with her left hand raised in front of her face; as viewer walks to right, the view of her pivots so that she is seen straight on; by the time the viewer reaches the right side, she is shown in slight profile so that her left side is more visible; as viewer moves to right, she lowers her upraised hand to her lap while slightly bowing her head.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
