Noguchi brought together East and West in a unique and distinctly poetic style. 
He was able to enrich his sculpture with an aura of magical suspension and inner glow that permeates throughout the museum.

Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988), an internationalist, traveled extensively throughout his life.  (In his later years he maintained studios both in Japan and New York.)  He discovered the impact of large-scale public works in Mexico, earthy ceramics and tranquil gardens in Japan, subtle ink-brush techniques in China, and the purity of marble in Italy.  He incorporated all of these impressions into his work, which utilized a wide range of materials, including stainless steel, marble, cast iron, balsawood, bronze, sheet aluminum, basalt, granite, and water.
