Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Isamu Noguchi Chess Table

May 18, 2016

Lot 184, Isamu Noguchi, Chess Table, 1944-1947

LAMA is immensely pleased to offer Isamu Noguchi’s exceptional and rare Chess Table—first designed for “The Imagery of Chess,” a 1944 exhibit at the Julien Levy Gallery in New York organized by Marcel Duchamp and Max Ernst. Peter Loughrey discusses this seminal exhibit and Noguchi’s contribution to it: “The table is not only a seminal work in the development of organic modernism…it also embodies a perfect union of art and design, being, as it is, sculptural and functional at once.”
