Biography

Clara Tice, nicknamed “Queen of Greenwich Village”, was a prominent artist and personality in the Manhattan Bohemian scene of the 1920s. Through her acquaintance with Marcel Duchamp, Tice became a member of the Arensberg Circle and the New York Dada movement, with peers John Covert, Man Ray, and Henri-Pierre Roché. Tice became an instant sensation in 1915 when locals raided an exhibition of her nude drawings; the event caught the attention of an editor at Vanity Fair, for whom Tice would provide illustrations along with countless other publications. She was known for her simple-yet-evocative linear style and her favorite subject matter: vaudevillians, dancers, actors, female nudes, and animals.
