Medium: Sculpture in Marble
Year: undated
Dimensions: Height and Width: 14”; Depth: 4.5”

Details/Condition: This original sculpture features an iris design rendered in charcoal marble by renowned Japanese sculptor, Masayuki Nagare. We will offer two original Nagare marble sculptures during this auction (also see lot #6268). Both pieces were originally part of the holdings of Lincoln Kirstein and came to us from the heir in the Kirstein estate. Lincoln Kirstein was the grandson of a wealthy Rochester, NY clothing manufacturer and grew up in Boston. He attended Harvard where he launched the Hound and Horn which would become an influential artistic publication. An important figure in artistic circles, Kirstein was a subject for celebrated photographer, Walker Evans. In 1946, Kirstein founded The Ballet Society with George Balanchine and saw the name change to The New York City Ballet in 1948. Kirstein served as the company’s General Director through 1989.

Masayuki Nagare ( born February 14, 1923) is a modernist Japanese sculptor who has the nickname "Samurai Artist". He was born in Nagasaki to Kojuro Nakagawa, who established Ritsumeikan University. As a teenager, he lived in several temples in Kyoto where he studied the patterns of rocks, plants and water created by traditional landscape artists. In 1942, he went on to Ritsumeikan University where he studied Shintoism and sword-making, but he left before graduation. Afterwards, he entered the naval forces preliminary school, and experienced the end of the Pacific War as a Zero fighter pilot. After the War, he learned sculpture by self-study while roaming the world. Nagare's works include Cloud Fortress which was destroyed at the World Trade Center (New York City), Sakimori (Frontier Guardian) installed in a courtyard at the Honolulu Academy of Arts, Hamaritsurin Garden in Seto Ohashi Commemorative Park, Kagawa Prefecture, Japan, Ju at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and Transcendence (informally called The Banker's Heart by locals) installed in the A.P. Giannini Plaza at 555 California Street (formerly the Bank of America building) in San Francisco, California. (courtesy of wikipedia)
