NEW YORK, N.Y., May 27, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- When Eadweard Muybridge unveiled his stop-motion photography - which included images of the horse in motion - in the late 1800s, the world was astonished. In the fascinating photographs, Muybridge was the first to capture and sequence movement. These photographs hinted at the technological and artistic revolutions to come, heralding the cinema and advances in stop-motion. Many Eadweard Muybridge photographs became sensations and, even today, Muybridge's artworks are referenced by legendary artists and filmmakers alike. The pioneering art e-commerce site 20x200, the place to discover and buy art online, is offering a limited-edition print of a Muybridge photograph of a couple dancing. New York City gallerist James Danziger acquired the 1887 Muybridge print, which falls under the public domain, and is now making it available to a broader audience of art lovers through 20x200.

The 20x200-exclusive "Animal Locomotion; Plate 197 (Couple Dancing)" features the sequences of a couple dancing the waltz. Dressed in typical 19th-century fashion, the charming couple is captured in 24 black and white frames as the man holds his smiling companion close to him. Danziger found the 1887 Muybridge print at California-based art fair Photo LA, and notes that the lovely print will make for a fitting wedding present. The museum-quality print is available for $20 in an edition of 100 for an 8"x10" print, as well as for $50 in an edition of 500 for an 11"x14" print and for $200 in an edition of 50 for a 16"x20" print.

An English-born pioneer in photographing motion and motion-picture projection, Eadweard Muybridge (1830 - 1904) is best known for his studies of animals in motion-in particular, the Muybridge horse. By using a series of cameras to capture the motion of animals and people, Muybridge answered the question of whether all four of a horse's hooves leave the ground during a gallop (they do). His groundbreaking works are now part of the collections of such major institutions as the Smithsonian and University of Pennsylvania, with exhibitions of his works at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Tate Britain in Millbank, London, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
