Overview

Born in 1904 to an American mother and a Japanese poet father, Isamu Noguchi divided his childhood and adolescence between two countries in which he never felt he belonged. Only creating art made him feel at home, and Noguchi traveled the world and worked with some of the most renowned artists of the twentieth century. The ingenious ways he blended both his American and Japanese heritages into sculpture, furniture, stage sets, and public gardens made Noguchi a world-renowned artist. This detailed biography examines how Isamu Noguchi was able to nurture his artistic vision, and in turn mold a striking aesthetic legacy.

Caroline Tiger's "Isamu Noguchi" is a terrific and concise Bio. It should be on anyone's short list of those readers who are interested in his Art, Life, and Spirit. It is also notable for being the only hard-copy account thus far to be entirely accurate about his important adolescent years being publicly schooled at LaPorte, Indiana High School while living with a typical Midwestern family. --Glenn Ralston NoguchiBlog.com
