Boldly departing from the confines of traditional ballet, Isadora Duncan (1877–1927) pioneered a style of dance that emphasised natural, intuitive movement. Inspired by classical Greek art, folk dances and the forces of nature, she created dances marked by freedom and athleticism. Duncan captivated the artistic imagination and was immortalised in the work of artists including Auguste Rodin and Antoine Bourdelle. On 17 March 1900, at the age of 22, Duncan gave her first ever European   performance, in London; to mark the anniversary of the occasion, this week we look at four works depicting the 'mother of modern dance' herself. This is part of our 'Four things to see' series, which offers you a new way in to some of the world's greatest collections, sponsored by Bloomberg Connects: the free arts and culture app.

Restitution is a subject that is rarely away from the news. Discussions around the Parthenon marbles frequently hit the headlines. On the other side of the Atlantic, the Manhattan District Attorney's office recently filed a motion accusing the Art Institute of Chicago of ignoring evidence that a drawing by Egon Schiele was looted by the Nazis. All matters of restitution are difficult to untangle and, as collecting categories widen, are increasingly something that every collector needs to   be concerned about. On Friday 8 March, to coincide with the opening of TEFAF in Maastricht, Edward Behrens chaired a discussion presented by ARTE Generali with Apollo at the Fotomuseum aan het Vrijthof.
