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.

Isamu Noguchi Foundation, New York The Pace Gallery, New York (acquired from the above in 1983) Private Collection (acquired from the above in 1983) The Pace Gallery, New York Acquired by the present owner from the above in 2003 Celebrated for his exceptional eye and aesthetic sophistication, Andrew S. Gordon amassed an eclectic collection that balances a sleek penchant for design with an acute appreciation for the fine arts. An independent architect, designer and artist, Mr. Gordon was recognized in New York, Florida, and California circles for his inimitable taste, meticulous visual judgment, playful spirit, and passion for creative discovery. The Andrew S. Gordon Collection is highly dynamic in range, demonstrating remarkable depth in the decorative arts, from an extensive assortment of beautifully crafted and extraordinarily elegant pieces of Georgian furniture to fine examples of the Chinese decorative arts. His sense of design was particularly evident in his New York apartment where he cleverly mixed modern furniture with an impressive collection of fine and rare pieces of English furniture by some of the best 18th and early 19th century cabinet-making firms such as Giles Grendey, Mayhew and Chippendale.

GORDON Isamu Noguchi MANNARI MANNARI incised with the artist's initials on the backside jasper stone with hot-dipped galvanized steel base Overall: 29 3/4 by 8 1/2 by 8 in. 75.6 by 21.6 by 20.3 cm.
