The artist Beatrice Wood, born in 1893, lived and worked until the age of 105. She was known variously as the Mama of Dada and the Queen of Luster. In 1917 she was part of the avant-garde Dada movement in New York. By the mid-1950s she had become a leading practitioner of luster-glazed ceramics. Wood moved from being a debutante to joining one of the most bohemian circles of her day. Her work played with sexuality, but her aesthetic was often more comic than erotic. Now featured in over one hundred museums across the world, Wood is often quoted for her recipe to a long life: 'art books, chocolates, and young men.' This book contains a collection of risque drawings that document an intimate relationship she enjoyed with a married couple, Jack and Rhea Case, in Ojai, California, during the 1950s and 1960s
The blind man by Marcel Duchamp( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Blind Man' was a key magazine of the early 20th century, the product of a rich network of proto-Dada, modernist and other avant-garde New York salons and publications that introduced audiences to Dada in the US. Produced by Marcel Duchamp, Beatrice Wood and Henri-Pierre Roché, only two issues of the 'Blind Man' ever appeared, but these included a who's who of the New York and Paris avant-gardes: Mina Loy, Walter Conrad Arensberg, Francis Picabia, Gabrielle Buffet, Allen Norton, Clara Tice, Alfred Stieglitz, Charles Demuth, Charles Duncan, Erik Satie, Carl Van Vechten and Louise Norton all appeared in its pages. Allegedly, the fate of the 'Blind Man' was decided in a chess game between Roché and Picabia (who was about to put out his own Dada publication, '391'). And the magazine went out with a bang--its final issue has gone down in art history for featuring Stieglitz's iconic photograph of Duchamp's 'Fountain' and a defense of that work, seen now as perhaps the most important artwork of the 20th century

I shock myself : the autobiography of Beatrice Wood by Beatrice Wood( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beatrice Wood's Life has been extraordinary in every way, from earliest childhood, when her dominating Victorian mother realized she "wasn't like the rest of them," to her productive life at ninety-five in California's Ojiai Valley. Rebellious, radical and romantic, Beatrice Wood was determined to be an artist. She fled to Paris for several bohemian seasons as a painter and actress, then returned to New York where she fell into the loving clutches of two Frenchmen: Henri-Pierre Roche, the author of Jules and Jim, and Marcel Duchamp, the iconoclastic Dadaist. Her promising youth was followed by a disastrous marriage, financial woes and a debilitating physical affliction; but in 1933, at the age of forty, she discovered the passion that would change her life: pottery. Now one of America's acclaimed ceramicists, Beatrice Wood shares the intriguing details of her unconventional life in I Shock Myself. With candor and insight, she recollects nearly ten decades of world shaking events, heart breaking romances, and artistic achievement."--Publisher description
