Abstract

The author describes the role of materials in the development of her sculpture during her career of more than 40 years. An initial influence in 1934 was a Hans Arp relief in painted wood. In 1937 at the New Bauhaus, Chicago, under the direction of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, her preoccupation with materials was encouraged. She presents examples of her early work in wood and glass and also some of her recent large nonfigurative sculptures in bronze and painted welded sheet steel.
