Bird B

Bird B

1958
Sculpture, Stone
In the days when I was constantly within the orbit of India and Japan, Greece too was a part of my world. My trips, starting with the Bollingen Foundation Fellowship in 1949, permitted me the luxury of time, inspection, and introspection. Following my first acquaintance with Greece, I would often return on my peregrinations and would acquire marble with the help of the sculptor Michael Tombros. I finished this marble in the workshop of my friend Edison Price and showed it, along with others, at the Stable Gallery in 1959. Bird B is one of the sculptures I retained. It provides a memory of my love for Greece, which I have held since childhood.

The Noguchi Museum gives thanks to the many talented photographers who have documented Isamu Noguchi’s works, particularly Kevin Noble, who has photographed the Museum’s collection for decades, and Shigeo Anzai and Michio Noguchi, whose portraits of the original Museum installations continue to provide inspiration and insight.
