Additional Information

John Henry is known worldwide for his public works of art, which range in size from small tabletop pieces to some of the largest contemporary metal sculptures in the world. While identified by some in the 1970s as part of the Minimalist movement, the geometric forms that have defined Henry’s work for more than forty years have their aesthetic and historical base in Constructivism. He has a supreme commitment to the materiality of his work and an unwavering insistence on maintaining the integrity of the process and the materials in developing his visual vocabulary. This piece was a gift from the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in 1991.
