Eadweard Muybridge: Doing the Locomotion
After Dark: The National Magazine of Entertainment, Vol. 9, No. 9, January 1977.
bookseller quote:
Although not described as a "gay magazine", After Dark regularly covered topics of interest to the gay community. It regularly used images of nude or partially nude men for its cover and article illustrations. Some of the illustrations related directly to the subject of the article, but others seemed to be used just for their nudity or partial nudity.

LACK OF MERIT, NOT CLOTHES, LED TO 'MUYBRIDGE' FLAP
The Washington Times, August 16, 1992.

Photography's power was demonstrated last summer during the flap over a work by conceptual artist Sol LeWitt. Merry Foresta is understandably recluctant to discuss the episode. "It was a difficult time here," she says. The photograph, called "Muybridge 1," had been scheduled to be included in the Museum of American Art's "Eadweard Muybridge and Contemporary American Photography."

Since the 1970s, filmmakers have transformed Eadweard Muybridge's "motion study" photographs into moving images. Those who position Muybridge as a "father of cinema" disguise the extent of the work needed to achieve a flawless illusion of motion. Others foreground the creativity involved, challenging both Muybridge-as-icon and cinema-as-we-know-it.

Washington Post July 17, 1991; Page c1. Section: STYLE . Word Count: 599
Visitors to the National Museum of American Art had plenty to say in comment books about museum Director Elizabeth Broun's decision to remove a work by artist Sol LeWitt from a photography exhibit, "Eadweard Muybridge and Contemporary American Photography". The show is replete with images of nudes -- male and female. But Broun had removed the LeWitt piece last month because she believed viewing it was a "degrading" experience...

The Smithsonian's National Museum of American Art has restored a 1964 work by Sol LeWitt to a photography exhibit after Director Elizabeth Broun reversed her decision to remove the piece because viewing it was "degrading".

The organizers of an exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American Art have asked the museum to close the show immediately because Museum Director Elizabeth Broun removed a work that she considers "degrading." The 1964 piece by artist Sol LeWitt is a narrow oblong black box with 10 tiny apertures through which the viewer sees images of an advancing nude female torso. Broun said yesterday that viewing the work is "an embarrassing or humiliating experience" reminiscent of watching a peep show. Broun said she will not comply with the request to close the exhibit, "Eadweard Muybridge and Contemporary American Photography," scheduled to remain at the museum through Sept. 8....
