On view in the Mary D.B.T. Semans Great Hall

Three important modern sculptures are on view in the Nasher Museum’s Great Hall, on loan from the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas. A 1974 work by John Chamberlain (1927-2011) is a prime example of his use of twisted, welded and compressed scrap metal from cars. A bronze sculpture by Henri Laurens (1885-1954), one of the original members of the French Cubist group, was likely inspired by the reclining figures of his friend Henri Matisse. And a work by Welsh sculptor Richard Deacon (born 1949), Like a Bird, made in 1984, is a large, dynamic sculpture of soaring, interlocking curves made of thin, laminated wood.

On view on the front lawn: Mark di Suvero, In the Bushes, 1970-75. Painted steel. Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection at the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, Texas.
