Title

Sketch of Mabel Dodge By Witter Bynner

Subject

Art, Modernism, and Bohemia

Description

Witter Bynner wasn't as well known in New York City as he would become in Santa Fe, where he would cross paths with Dodge's crowd again. Dodge is the center of art work by a sprawling variety of poets, painters, and artists across Bohemia, which illustrates her captivating nature and the impact she made on the artists she surrounded herself with. This particular piece displays some of the modernist art trends which Dodge frequently promoted and therefore is important because the portrait symbolizes her deep connection to the advancement of new and experimental art.
