1904 - 1988
Isamu Noguchi was born on 17th November in Los Angeles the son of Leonie Gilmour, an American writer of Irish origin and Yonejiro (Yone) Noguchi, a Japanese poet. "Everything is sculpture. Every material, and each idea that is freely born in space, I consider to be sculpture. The boundary being in a certain way, perceived as the starting point embodying all the elements of space perception, and volume: a perception of volume that is not only bi-dimensional, but a three–dimensional. This is the manner in which I have carried out all my work."
