I used to always say 'I don't appreciate sculpture,' and I didn't. Then last week Artnet's Artist Works Catalogs had a new face at the top, and I discovered Isaac Witkin. I still don't appreciate sculpture, but Witkin's steel works knocked my socks off.
"Isaac Witkin is widely recognized as one of the most original and masterful sculptors in the modern era. After creating abstract welded steel works in the 1970's, Witkin began working in bronze, ultimately inventing his own sculptural language.
(Witkin was) born on May 10, 1936 in Johannesburg, South Africa and died on April 23, 2006 in Pemberton, New Jersey."

Ask yourself whether any of the sculptures could be presented inside a museum, but mainly . . . . just . . . . Enjoy:
