Description

Mina Loy was born in London in 1882, became American, and lived  variously in New York, Europe, and finally, Aspen until she died in  1966. Flamboyant and unapologetically avant-garde, she was a poet,  painter, novelist, essayist, manifesto-writer, actress, and dress and  lampshade designer. Her life involved an impossible abundance of  artistic friends, performance, and spectacular adventures in the worlds  of Futurism, Christian Science, feminism, fashion, and everything modern  and modernist.

This new account by Mary Ann Caws explores Mina  Loy’s exceptional life and features many rare images of Mina Loy and her  husband, the Swiss writer, poet, artist, boxer, and provocateur Arthur Cravan—who disappeared without a trace in 1918.
