A significant collection of work from Duchamp associate, collaborator and "dada mama" Beatrice Wood (1893-1998) is being sold off on Sunday in a California auction house near the town of Ojai, where she spent the last half-century of her life. Wood met Duchamp in New York during World War I and features in several episodes from his first residence in the city; she was a member of the "Arensberg Circle" and co-edited The Blind Man. Films derived from her adventures include Jules et Jim and Titanic.

Works on the block include several of Wood's bordello-themed ceramic sculptures -- including the epic Good Morning America -- drawings and other material.
