Gopnik's Daily Pic: Bertoia at the National Gallery


By Blake Gopnik

Another entry from my morning musings about art and objects at

Daily Pic: Harry Bertoia's 1977 "Tonal Sculpture," recently moved indoors at the National Gallery. Bertoia's best known for the great woven-wire chairs he designed in the 1950s, but maybe his later work as a sculptor is worth revisiting. A big problem: The National Gallery sculpture will last longer, now that it's inside -- but the wind can no longer coax sounds from it.
