Isamu Noguchi, Sail Shape, c. 1928. Brass sculpture on marble base.

Sail Shape

c. 1928
This was one of the sculptures left in Paris, along with all my tools, and ultimately lost. The version of Sail Shape shown here, a copy of the original, was made about 1962 after I had acquired a studio in Long Island City and was no longer obliged to move all the time or pay for storage.
