From Kertész (02/24/82): (This is) "a photograph of his brother in Hungary. Kertész was always asking him to dance or take poses for pictures (pretend he was Icarus); in this case, Kertész had asked him to dance a scherzo." See Kertész, Sixty Years of Photography (New York, 1972) and Borhan (Boston: 1994) for similar portraits dated 1919-1920s. This image does not appear.
