Love Flight of a Pink Candy Heart by Florine Stettheimer Artblock
The original of this fine painting is in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit, MI.
According to the DIA, the gentleman in white lounging on the grass is probably the painter Charles Demuth, with whom Florine was friends, while the gentleman in tails is likely the photographer and writer Carl Van Vechten, a longtime associate of the Stettheimers who snapped some really amazingly strange, even creepy, photos of Ettie and the third sister, Carrie, who's responsible for the dollhouse replica of their home that is on permanent view at the Museum of the City of New York. Florine's to the left on the balcony in that great pink number, and also at the lower right, dancing with an anonymous harlequin whom some scholars have identified as Duchamp, another family friend. (Florine organized his 30th birthday party).
On the back of the painting, the artist wrote this following poem:
My romance Past NY House Party Eden, New York In Memory of a Sugar Coated Heart My House (?) on Paradise (my party)←Arcadia Beautiful Yong men I have known Paradise, NY House Party Eden N. York April 1930
