Dove became involved with a fellow artist who eventually became his second wife. Helen Torr, or "Reds," as she was known to friends, was married. . . . Dove and Reds apparently did not provoke gossip when they went sketching together, but those expeditions must have had a salutary effect on Dove's self-confidence since he found he could have not only the respect but the love of another artist.

Whereas his own socially inclined wife, who had no serious interest in art, had chafed at the lifestyle Dove had chosen to support his vocation. Eventually, following Florence's unanticipated death, and Reds' delayed divorce, Dove and Reds went to New York's City Hall and married in 1932.
