Notes: Mable Dwight is now a little-known painter and printmaker. She enjoyed a good reputation as an artist in the 20's and 30's, and her career was boosted by Carl Zigrosser. Dwight's representational style, and her gentle, satirical tone place her in the circle of urban realist artists at work in New York City at this time. These papers and correspondence are a rare source for information about the artist.
