The only known extant Diebenkorn sculpture, this welded iron form is a brilliant example of his artistic development and the creative energy of his early work. 
<br>
<br>This rare sculpture comes from a period of experimentation and a burst of lyrical creativity that the artist experienced while in graduate school at the University of New Mexico. It was likely included in his 1951 Master's Degree Exhibition at that institution. Like many American artists before him, Diebenkorn was enthralled with the atmosphere and landscape of the Southwest. He produced energetic and unpredictable canvases with bold, warm colors, barely contained within their underlying geometric structure. This iron sculpture demonstrates the far reaches of the artist’s exploration, establishing the essential linear framework that would come to characterize his later work. 
<br>
<br>This piece was the only sculpture included in the 2008 exhibition "Diebenkorn in New Mexico" at the UNM Harwood Museum of Art in Taos. Since his first retrospective in 1976 at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, Diebenkorn has found a place in over 50 museum collections worldwide and is recognized as a major creative force of the 20th Century.

Carl Andre is an American artist who helped pioneer minimalist sculpture and was the husband of famed and celebrated artist Ana Mendieta. This is a classic text piece from the early 1960s and is typical of his poems which are composed by selecting individual words from source texts, and then ordering them on the page according to simple and self-evident criteria, which, in this case, is by alphabetical listing. Aviator Charles Lindbergh deep fascinated Carl Andre whom he returned to as a source for his poetry. This work with its structured repetition like his famed sculptures reflect the minimalism and post-minimalism emerging in the 1960s and the 1970s including fellow concrete poet Christopher Knowles.
