Barbara Liotta's Icarus
Icarus, Barbara Liotta
October 22, 2009-January 31, 2010

Conceived as a portrait of human energy and inner strength and as a symbol of flight and aspiration, this large-scale sculpture is made of strings and stones and suspended from the ceiling. Icarus is paired with portraits from the museum's permanent collection, including Eugène Delacroix's Paganini, Amedeo Modigliani's Elena Povolozky, and Chaim Soutine's Woman in Profile.
