Abstract:

This collection contains one photocopy of a letter written in installments (on August 4, 10, and 14, 1930) from Taos, New Mexico, by John Marin to Alfred Stieglitz. The seven-page letter concerns the Native American dances at Santo Domingo Pueblo. It mentions Mabel Dodge Luhan and Paul Strand. The letter describes the odd mood Marin is in after having seen the dances at Santo Domingo Pueblo, and mentions paintings he made based on the dances in 1929 and 1930, perhaps referring to his 1929 watercolor titled "Corn Dance." Marin also provides insight into his views of Mabel Dodge Luhan (New York socialite-turned- reporter and patron of the artists' colony at Taos, New Mexico). Marin writes that he witnessed two dogs fighting and "Mable [sic] Luhan [sic] came over to have it stopped" as she said "it disturbed her tenents [sic] working -- working Ha Ha." Finally, the author reports on the local government fish hatcheries, mentions the climatic conditions of the time, and adds that "even Mr. Paul Strand has given up a cussing the people for a spell and is enjoying the orgy." This comment is not contextualized further. Thus, the letter reflects Marin's social connections and his opinions surrounding the Taos art colony.
