Beatrice Wood "Beato" (American, 1893-1998). Rounded conical ceramic pottery vase. Luster glazed stoneware. Decorated with sigils along the interior and exterior. Signed along the underside.

Beatrice Wood was heavily involved in the Avant Garde movement in the United States. She founded and edited The Blind Man and Rongwrong magazines in New York City with Marcel Duchamp and Henri-Pierre Roche in 1917. These magazines were originally created to defend Duchamp's famous submission of a urinal under the pseudonym of R. Mutt to the First Exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists in April of that same year. She was often characterized as the "Mama of Dada," as she was among the earliest pioneers of the Dada art movement in the U.S. Wood was also the inspiration for the fictional character Rose DeWitt Bukater in James Cameron's hit movie "Titanic" (1997).

Height: 5 1/2 in x width: 10 3/4 in.


No visible cracks, chips, or losses. No visible signs of restoration under UV light. Very light wear throughout, particularly along the underside. Throughout the item, there are areas of uneven coloration; however, they appear to be original to the design.
