Rock Paper Scissors

Encounter (1969, bronze, six parts) by Dorothy Dehner (American, 1901-1994)
Even  The Centipede (1952, unglazed kasama stoneware, wood pole and hemp cord) by Isamu Noguchi  (American, 1904-1988)
Imprisoned Figure (1948, wood and sheet lead) by Seymour Lipton (American, 1903-1986)
On view at the Paul J. Sachs Prints and Illustrated Books Galleries (second floor) of the Museum of Modern Art are these three sculptures by Isamu Noguchi, Seymour Lipton and Dorothy Dehner. These pieces are part of the "Abstract Expressionist New York: Rock Paper Scissors" exhibit that runs through February 28, 2011. The exhibit features sculptures and works on paper—realized in wood, stone, lead, etching, lithography, cut paper, watercolor, and crayon, among other materials and processes—by artists who moved in Abstract Expressionist circles.
