A beautifully illustrated book covering the entirety of the artist's work in sculpture, ceramics, photography, architecture, design, as well as his playscapes, gardens and stage sets for modern dance and theatre performance.

This handsome book which accompanies an exhibition at the Noguchi Museum traces the friendship and mutual influence between two artists: the Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) and the Japanese painter and theorist Saburo Hasegawa (1906–1957). It's tells the fascinating tale of how two great artists navigated a globalized cultural world and found inspiration at home and abroad.

The book includes vivid illustrations of Noguchi's Akari lamps and instantly recognizable stone, wood and metal sculptures as well as Hasegawa's paintings; essays by curators Dakin Hart and Mark Dean Johnson, Hasegawa’s “Noguchi in Japan” (1950) and Noguchi’s essay, “Remembrance of Saburo Hasegawa” (1976).
