Where to buy … Clara Tice: Naughty or Nice?

Clara Tice was among the first bohemians to settle in New York’s Greenwich Village in the 1910s.

Clara Tice was among the first bohemians to settle in New York’s Greenwich Village in the 1910s. A student of Robert Henri, leader of the “Ashcan” school of realism, she later embraced the playful absurdism of dada. By turns silly and serious, these drawings wittily capture the period. With just a few lines, Tice’s lithe images of women dancing suggest limbs, hair, and flowing costumes. But amid such frivolity are darker portents. In The War Mother (1916), a mourning figure formed by three large fields of ink seems stylish and creepy all at once. 44 E. 74th St., (212) 744-7306, through Jan. 15. Prices range from $5,000 to $10,000.
