Gaston Lachaise: Man/Woman
Early 20th century sculptor Gaston Lachaise abandoned his Parisian home in order to pursue a married American woman, Isabel Dutaud Nagle, who was the object of his obsession, his muse, and eventually his wife. More than 50 bronze and marble figurative works (many inspired by Nagle) will be on display.
"Lachaise was that singular being of today and yesterday," American painter Marsden Hartley wrote in 1939, "the worshipper of beauty . . . beauty was his meat and bread, it was his breath and music, it was the image that traversed his dreams, and troubled his sleep, it was his vital, immortal energy."
