Note: “He was doubtlessly the Brancusi of the North, with a rare feeling for abstraction and for the sheer beauty of curved and hard-edged shapes. He couldn’t put any of these thoughts into words, but he did what counts most: he made them into sculptures. These were more than mere objects for him; they were sensuous renderings of his sensibility for pure form, with a vague hint of subject matter without which the form had very little conscious meaning for him.”
