The Isamu Noguchi Catalogue Raisonné Digital Project, New York: The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum, no. 319.01. Condition Report: In a few places, a darker granite color appears beneath the reddish/brown color (at the edge of the roof and the underside of the legs).There is variation in the brown color throughout, the top of the roof appears slightly cooler in tone as does the interior of the work. This can be attributed to residual of the firing process and/or intrinsic in the clay itself. Other works from this period, in Kasama and other stonewares also show variations in the clay color, which can be identified as the results of firing and should not be considered a condition issue. There is minor dust and surface soiling accumulated on the interior and inside the window openings. There are two faint moisture stains on the top of the roof near the edge, one measuring 1/2 inch and the other 1 1/2 inch. The outer edge of the roof is very slightly shiny and also the inside of the roof to approx. 1-inch. there is faint scuffing or white chalk on the underside in the area of the monogram and undersides of the legs. Overall in very good condition. Descriptions provided in both printed and on-line catalogue formats do not include condition reports. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. Interested bidders are strongly encouraged to request a condition report on any lots upon which they intend to bid, prior to placing a bid.

Lot number: 131
Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Isamu Noguchi (American, 1904-1988) Untitled (Nude), 1933 ink on paper signed Isamu 33 61in (24cm) x 16in (40.5cm) Footnotes Acquired by the present owner in 1979 The year that this work was executed was a time of tumultuous change, both professional and personal, for Isamu Noguchi. Three years earlier he began a period of travel and exploration, first to Peking, where he studied brush painting under the tutelage of seminal Chinese artist Qi Baishi, and then to Japan. Noguchi returned to the US in 1931 in order to exhibit and sell his Asian brush paintings and sculptures with a successful touring exhibition that visited Chicago, California and Honolulu. In January 1933, the year that this work was executed, Noguchi began work on a mural with Santiago Martinez Delgado for the Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago. Whilst in Chicago he sold many of his new sculptural works, and it seems probable that it was during this time that this work was sold. Six months later Noguchi traveled to London, finally returning to the US in December, shortly before his mother's death.
