New York Armory Show of 1913
This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Marion H. Beckett, who exhibited in the 1913 Armory Show in New York City, traveled to Paris, France in 1908 with artist Katherine Rhoades, who also exhibited in the Armory Show. Both artists were exposed to modernist trends there, which influenced their work and attitudes.

Beckett and Rhoades were women artists active, from 1908, in the Alfred Stieglitz group of artists associated with the avant-garde 291 Gallery in New York City, including Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Arthur Dove and, of course, Georgia O'Keeffe. Beckett and Rhoades would have a two-person exhibition at 291 in 1915.

Marion Beckett's work in this exhibition was reviewed in The New York Times in October 1916, and described by Elizabeth Carey as "now fighting under the Post-Impressionist banner," the term "fighting" indicating that modern art movements still had work to do to be accepted in the United States. A New York Herald review commented on Beckett using "strident and striking color to the limit."

In the 1914 issue of Stieglitz's journal, Camera Work, Beckett and Rhoades contributed to its theme, "What 291 Means to Me." Also in 1914, both artists were represented in a show of modern art at the National Arts Club in New York City.
