Sculptor Isamu Noguchi's ties to Seattle are significant and enduring. Black Sun, a granite disk, is situated before the Seattle Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park, and has become one of the city's most beloved landmarks. Sky-Viewing Sculpture at Western Washington University in Bellingham is user-friendly and popular.Born in 1904 in Los Angeles, Noguchi spent his early years in both Japan and the United States. In 1927 a Guggenheim Fellowship took him to Paris where he became Constantin Brancusi's studio assistant and plunged into abstract and geometric work. Studies in China and Japan led to an appreciation of Zen gardens and a respect for nature. This book illustrates a number of his works.
