Description: 

Ina Alcova was a Vaudeville ballet dancer known as "The Flying Alcova." Rather than the usual vertical portrait, Hixon has created a horizontal portrait of Ina flying through a whimsical landscape. She leaps into the light from the dark. A bright ray of light shines downward upon her head. The pattern of her skirt echoes the "brushstrokes" of the background.
