Please follow the links below for related online resources or visit our current exhibitions schedule.A native Washingtonian who has achieved international acclaim, Martin Puryear (b. 1941) has created a distinctive body of sculpture that defies categorization. Serenely quiet and poetic, his work explores natural forms and materials, especially a wide variety of woods, and it engages issues of history, culture, and identity. In the first American retrospective of the artist's work in more than 15 years, some 48 objects created between 1976 and 2007 reflect the integration of concepts of minimalism.
