Noguchi -- Night Land (detail)
sculpture: Night Land.
artist: Isamu Noguchi.
materials: Black York stone.
collection: Nelson-Atkins Art Museum, Kansas City, Missouri.
One of the two earliest pieces in the Nelson’s Noguchi collection, this one (made from York fossil marble) evokes a surrealist dreamscape as well as a Japanese garden. It also relates to work he created for the choreographer Martha Graham. “ ‘Night Land,’ ” Rychlak said, “is one of the most important sculptures he ever did.”
