In the News

“If as yet much of the work seems incomplete, unclear, revolutionary (as with much of the extreme abstract painting) the sculpture of our time seems to denote a period of transition; and this the 1954 exhibition at the Whitney certainly bears out.” —The New York Times

“In all three fields—more in water-colors and drawings than in sculpture—the modern tendency toward mixed media is evident. It has become something of a puzzle, in fact, as to which field pieces should be assigned . . .” —The New York Times
