Catalogue published by Storm King Art Center in 2003 in conjunction with the special three-year exhibition, Grand Intuitions: Calder’s Monumental Sculpture, 2001-2003.
Just one hour north of the George Washington Bridge, set in a beautiful valley of the Hudson Highlands, are 500 acres of open fields, intimate woodlands, and rolling hills that form an outdoor museum unequaled anywhere in the world. The Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, New York, is a unique setting for modern sculpture. The natural beauty of the landscape — continually enhanced, sculpted, and nurtured — is home to an ever-evolving collection of important works of modern art. Here the sculpture of such modern masters as Magdalena Abakanowicz, Alexander Calder, Mark di Suvero, Andy Goldsworthy, Alexander Liberman, Henry Moore, Louise Nevelson, Isamu Noguchi, George Rickey, Richard Serra, David Smith, Kenneth Snelson, and Ursula von Rydingsvard find surroundings equal to their heroic presence.
The magnificent photographs of Jerry L. Thompson capture the landscape and the works of Calder in summer and snow, at sunrise and dusk, glistening in the rain and shimmering in mist. The interplay between works of sculpture and billowing clouds, fields of spring flowers, and green, golden, and scarlet foliage adds a dimension to the experience of sculpture only equaled by many visits to the Storm King Art Center itself.
