DIARY ENTRY, February 23, 1928:

"Dine, Arensbergs. Walter takes me home. Seems to be serious about misbehaving."

There was here a little interlude in our friendship. My friendship with the Arensbergs was not based on our art interests. It was curiously personal and close, and they sometimes discussed points of view not shared with others. Though their lives were bound together, they had a big old- fashioned double bed in the bedroom, sometimes they casually referred to the fact that Walter had excursions with little chiepies [sic].
I never quite understood the fine points of this arrangement. After years of an even, platonic relationship between Walter and myself, suddenly he approached our friendship with a romantic eye. Loving Lou and also loving him, I would allow nothing of the kind to come between us. Weeks later Lou told me I was the only woman she knew who could be trusted with another woman’s husband. I treasured the remark. And knew how much she had suffered in New York, with many women falling all over Walter, as if she were not there in her life.

Beatrice Wood: Career Woman

Drawings, Paintings, Vessels, and Objects

Edited by Elsa Longhauser, Lisa Melandri. Text by Garth Clark, Francis M. Naumann, Marie T. Keller, Kathleen Pyne, Jenni Sorkin, Lida M. Sunderland.

Featured image—of dancer, actress, ceramicist and "Mama of Dada"—Beatrice Wood in her studio in 1987, is reproduced from <I>Beatrice Wood: Career Woman.</I>A stage actress with the Parisian Comédie-Française; a Dadaist and New York bohemian who edited The Blind Man with Marcel Duchamp; a devoted follower of spiritual guru Jiddu Krishnamurti at Ojai; and a model for the character Rose in Titanic: throughout her many incarnations, Beatrice Wood (1893–1998) continued to produce important work right up until her death at the age of 105. After her New York years as the “Mama of Dada,” Wood moved to Los Angeles, where she took up ceramics and was soon receiving international attention for her eccentric figural sculptures, vessels and goblets, glazed with her signature iridescent hues. Beatrice Wood: Career Woman offers a scholarly assessment of her remarkable life and work, with full-color plates, photographs and writings documenting the evolution of her work and establishing her many contributions to twentieth-century avant-garde art.
