Created by the renowned modernist artist and landscape architect Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988), the Cullen Sculpture Garden at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, has grown into one of the most important sculpture parks in America. For the past two decades the garden has offered a perfect setting to feature sculptures from the museum's outstanding collection and for masterworks on loan.
This handsome book maps the sense of discovery and rediscovery that the Cullen Sculpture Garden instills in every visitor. Two essays by leading experts on Noguchi and landscape architecture illuminate the history of the garden and its creator, and scholarly catalogue entries shed light on all twenty-three of the sculptures exhibited within this remarkable one-acre site.
