From Harold Koda’s essay: “In his work…he is achieving a perfect harmony between the different interior aspects of his models. On the one hand, unbridled beauty, nostalgic sadness, the fire of passions, extravagance, allusions, inventions, and suggestiveness, and on the other hand, form and the outer features of his creations.”
