I saw my first Noguchi in February 2017 at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.

Paris Abstraction,1928 called out to me from the minute I saw it. It was also the first work in the exihibition that one would have seen rounding the corner into the exhibit hall.

This work uses an economy of shapes and textures. It has that special quality where one can't really think of anything left to add to it or of anything that could be taken away. This made it a good candidate for digital reproduction.
