“Mabel Luhan Dodge: (1879-1962) American patroness of the arts and memoirist, Famous for her salons in Italy and New York in the early 20th century, Luhan cultivated close associations with D.H. Lawrence, John Reed, Gertrude Stein, and Carl Van Vechten. She had three husbands before she married a Pueblo Indian and settled in Taos, New Mexico, where she was a vital force behind the art colony there. She also wrote Lorenzo in Taos (1932) about her relationship with Lawrence, and a four-volume autobiography, Intimate Memories (1933-1937).”
