Four brass rings and one jade ring, n.d. (pre-1966)

Richard Pousette-Dart started to work in painting and sculpture in the mid-1930s, holding his first exhibition in New York in 1941. It was at this time that he met Jim, who was in the United States on a lecture tour. There ensued a long and poetic correspondence, revolving around their shared admiration for Henri Gaudier-Brzeska.

Throughout the 1960s and 70s Pousette-Dart explored astronomical subjects, frequently using circles and holes in combination with titles such as Moon, Sun, Implosion or Healing Circles. They suggest a desire to explore the duality between the worldly and the spiritual, the physical and the immaterial that also characterizes this untitled sculptural composition.
