English critic Clement Crisp said of Lincoln Kirstein (1907-1966), "He was one of those rare talents who touch the entire artistic life of their time. Ballet, film, literature, theatre, painting, sculpture, photography all occupied his attention.' Kirsten co-founded the New York City Ballet in 1946 and served as the organization's general director from 1946 until 1989.
