Isamu Noguchi, Ends, 1985, swedish granite with pine props.  Collection of The Nelson- Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Gift of the Hall Family Foundation Collection
(As a curator at The Noguchi Museum I recognize that we can’t have every work by Isamu Noguchi or only those of us who live in New York would get to see his work.  I can still lust after Noguchis in other collections….)
Photographed by Shigeo Anzai when it was shown as part of “Isamu Noguchi: What is Sculpture?” at the 1986 Venice Biennale
