Description

Mabel Dodge and Hutch Hapgood had a complicated relationship for Dodge's days in New York. It isn't clear if they ever acted on their feelings of attraction that are expressed in their dozens of letters between each other, but ultimately Hapgood would choose to stay with his wife Neith Boyce and follow her wishes to close the doors on their open relationship. Hapgood and Dodge discussed concepts of marriage as well as artistic pursuits. Dodge created this "Life Mask" of Hapgood likely as part of an artistic experiment.
