Remarking on a new body of smaller-scaled sculptures by Tony Rosenthal, including Mother and Child (1953), in the November 1953 edition of Arts & Architecture then-Chairman of the Department of Art at UCLA, Gibson Danes, described the artist’s recent bronze works as being “lyrical with the gaiety and gravity of a superbly wrought ballet.”  “Although autonomous and independent creations,” he continued, “these new works imply an architectural setting. They envelop and electrify the expansive dimension of their ordered world.”  Rosenthal’s abstract, geometric sculptures continually embraced a play with seemingly irreconcilable binaries.
