Weathered sculpture gets new life in a seaside home

(Continued)

ROCKPORT, Mass. —

Hadzi was known for "monumental" work, including a sculpture in the lobby of Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in New York. His pieces are also kept by the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum, Guggenheim Museum, Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., and Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

He retired from Harvard in 1989 but continued to work in his Cambridge studio. At the time of his death in 2006, Margalit Fox wrote in The New York Times, “His work, tall and imposing, gives hints of figuration, incorporating long, columnar forms that can suggest the limbs of people or animals. It was praised by critics for its impeccable craftsmanship, energy and carefully calibrated interplay of solid form with open space.”

Gail McCarthy writes for the Gloucester, Mass., Daily Times.
