Although known primarily for her lustrous ceramic vessels, legendary artist Beatrice Wood was a prolific drawer with a penchant for depicting sidelong glances and body language between couples (and thruples!). Particularly relevant during a pandemic that will long be remembered for social distancing, Tête-à-Tête-à-Tête is a celebration of Wood’s uncanny ability to capture the inherent drama of social interactions with a few deft strokes of her pen.
