SPECIAL NOTE Isamu Noguchi was an American artist and landscape architect whose artistic career spanned six decades, from the 1920s onward, he also was one of the twentieth century’s most important and critically acclaimed sculptors. Through a lifetime of artistic and design experimentation, he created sculptures, gardens, furniture and lighting designs, ceramics, architecture, and set designs. His work, at once subtle and bold, traditional and modern, set a new standard for the reintegration of the arts. Noguchi, an internationalist, traveled extensively throughout his life-In his later years he maintained studios both in Japan and New York. He discovered the impact of large-scale public works in Mexico, earthy ceramics and tranquil gardens in Japan, subtle ink-brush techniques in China, and the purity of marble in Italy. He incorporated all of these impressions into his work, which utilized a wide range of materials, including stainless steel, marble, cast iron, balsa wood, bronze, sheet aluminum, basalt, granite, and water.
