Dineh , 1981

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

Additional Information: Allan Houser, the most important individual in the development of contemporary American Indian sculpture and a significant figure in American art since the 1930s, was equally accomplished whether working with stone or bronze. His subjects were always Indian, but his themes, like the dignified Navajo couple here, are often universal. Houser’s sculptures range from completely realist to highly abstract, but his instantly identifiable signature style is a sinuous, elegant semi-abstraction of form. One of the most widely recognized bronze editions created by Houser, this 1981 modernist portrait of a Navajo couple displays the dignity and inner strength of the people known to themselves as "Dineh.” On loan from the collection of TIA, 2009

Untitled , 1981

by John Henry


Mediums: Steel

Location: Joslyn; Joslyn Art Museum Sculpture Garden 2200 Dodge St.

Owner: Joslyn Art Museum

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.
