Ghost in an Avant-Garde Alley

screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-2-14-05-pmJames McAuley’s article “The Artists in Their Alley, In Postwar France,” featured in the Style Magazine of the Sunday New York Times, seems to exemplify Mina Loy’s position in the “alleys” of the avant-garde. In the online version, she appears front and center of a group portrait that gets top billing (less prominent in the print magazine), but she never earns mention in anything but a caption in the article. She’s a ghostly presence in the alleys of the avant-garde—there, but her contributions unnamed.
