Although best known as a sculptor, Isamu Noguchi was also a thoughtful and thought-provoking essayist. This collection of writings spans the full course of his career, and includes discussion of matters as diverse as the range of his artistic production. From his youthful application for the Guggenheim Fellowship that led him to an apprenticeship with Constantin Brancusi, to extraordinarily articulate statements reflecting on all aspects of his work, Noguchi presents his ideas with characteristic elegance and passion.
