"The art of Isamu Noguchi is unique in both form and content. Even among major 20th-century artists, he is unparalleled in his ability to design sculptural spaces and structures - gardens, playgrounds, sets, and so on - which are humanistic yet uncompromisingly modern. His studio sculpture is equally outstanding, for he is constantly exploring materials and themes that have universal appeal for the senses and the mind. He tries to extend the boundaries of "sculpture" even further designing furniture and lamps as sculptural objects. By long-term involvement with environmental and functional design, and by continous shifts in formal approach to an almost infinite variety of media, Noguchi has so far managed to evade art historical definition." - Introduction. ; Garland Reference Library of the Humanities; Ex-Library; Vol. 207; xvii, 220 p., [199] leaves of plates pages.
