Living 105 years, Beatrice Wood was a noted ceramist and also a sparkling personality in the New York art world in the early 20th century. She was friends with early Dadaists Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Isadora Duncan, Francis Picabia, and, because of these associations, was dubbed the "Mama of Dada". Man Ray spoke of her "demurely raunchy wit and famed naughtiness, your bohemianism . . . and extraordinary sense of personal style. . . and her lustrous, opulent ceramic vessels" ("Art in America" 1/9 (showing 500 of 3096 characters).
