Millais called this painting “the picture with the dreadful blue-and-white page in the corner.” Do you agree?

Death Valley Junction, CA
For close to 50 years, Marta Becket danced in the middle of the desert. She built the Amargosa Opera House out of the shell of “town” constructed by the Pacific Coast Borax Company, the admirers she painted around the theater’s back walls often her only audience. She studied ballet in NYC, danced at Radio City, danced en pointe until she was 80. She retired in 2012, but sneaks out of retirement to take to the Amargosa every now and again. She’s still there, along with the stage she graced for decades.
