Combining Noguchi’s personal correspondence and interviews with those closest to him, Hayden Herrera has created an authoritative biography of one of the twentieth century’s most important sculptors.

Herrera spans Noguchi’s entire life, from his birth to educator/editor Leonie Gilmour and writer Yone Noguchi; through decades of work in wood, iron, clay, steel, aluminum, and, of course, stone; to relationships with such artists as Anna Matta Clark, Buckminster Fuller, Arshile Gorky, Martha Graham, and Frida Kahlo. A moving portrait of an artist compulsively driven to reinvent himself as he searched for his own “essence of sculpture.”

Written by Hayden Herrara
