Lachaise's friend, James Sibley Watson, Jr., was a member of MAG's founding family. This remarkably talented individual is best known for his editorship of the avant-garde publication "The Dial," where he worked with literary figures like e.e. cummings and Marianne Moore, as well as his early ventures into motion pictures, including the making of "The Fall of the House of Usher." Watson was married to Hildegarde Lasell Watson, who starred in the film and whose portrait sculpture by Lachaise is also owned by the Memorial Art Gallery (67.11).
