In 1923, British writer D.H. Lawrence threw a dinner party in London that he called “The Last Supper.” He had visited art patron Mabel Dodge Luhan in Taos earlier in the year, and was determined to convince all of his friends to move with him to New Mexico. Artist Dorothy Brett (1883-1977) was the only one who acquiesced, and journeyed there with Lawrence and his wife Frieda in 1924.
