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.
