The Sun and Richard Lippold
In this short masterpiece, Leo Hurwitz investigates the relationship between life experience and the creation of a work of art — here the effulgent sculpture, The Sun, by Richard Lippold. It is a visual essay on how the sun in our eyes, the eyes of our fellow humans, the experience of our cultures and our arts, connects to the sun in the work of the artist.
