Now for the nice occasion. hopefully, AHB31 Henry McBride, in Lachaise’s obituary 8 months after the exhibition, indexed because the sculptor’s admirers e. e. cummings, Gilbert Seldes, Lincoln Kirstein, and Edward Warburg. the only he singled out was once Warburg. It used to be most likely end result of the impact of the final named that the remarkable one-man exhibition of the Lachaise sculptures happened within the glossy Museum final iciness, an exhibition so overwhelming in its attraction that you'd have concept the complete international should have succumbed to it; yet there have been no indicators of this type of submission. 32 4 years after the artist’s dying, Warburg wrote a letter to Isabel Lachaise—this time at the streamlined paintings Deco letterhead of his deepest workplace at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
