Bio Details

Full name

Joseph Charles Duncan





Left Isadora's mother amidst a banking scandal for which he was arrested and audited after 4 trials.
Her first public appearances in America made little impact, so she left for England in 1899 with her sister, Elizabeth, her brother, Raymond, and her mother. There, she and Raymond studied Greek sculpture at the British Museum which inspired her dance style and costume -- adopting the Greek tunic and dancing barefoot.
