Niki de Saint Phalle’s sculptures on view showcased the ancient art form of mosaic in a new, exciting way. Combining dynamic color and form, de Saint Phalle created vibrant, lively figures, which are partly inspired by the famous Barcelona-based architect Antonio Gaudi (1852–1926). Her figures take on a life of their own: their large scale and active lines create motion and vigor. This installation was on view from April 28–November 07, 2010 and March 26–October 30, 2011.
