During the years of World War I, Louise and Walter Arensberg, wealthy collectors of modern art, opened their apartment on 67th Street off Central Park West in Manhattan to nightly soirees, exciting intellectual gatherings where American poets and artists -- fueled by drinks and hors d'oeuvres -- intermingled with their European counterparts, most of whom fled to New York seeking refuge from the war.
In the introduction to this publication, readers are invited to join a party that took place at the Arensberg apartment on the night of May 25, 1917. At this gathering, you would not only have met the Arensbergs and Duchamp, but their close coterie of friends, later known as The Arensberg Circle.
