Reuben Nakian, 1969

Reuben Nakian (1897-1986) was an American sculptor and teacher.

Poet Frank O’Hara was the curator of a major Reuben Nakian retrospective at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art in 1966. In the exhibition’s catalog, O’Hara noted: “Nakian is unrepressed, un-neurotic, unabashed in his approach to sensuality, however tortuous his esthetic commitment, and whether his subject be death, bestiality, or Arcadian dalliance.” Read more (Wikipedia).
