The information provided about this artwork was compiled as part of the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Inventories of American Painting and Sculpture database, designed to provide descriptive and location information on artworks by American artists in public and private collections worldwide.
The sculpture is composed of two separate elements, each on its own plinth; the abstract movements of the two combine into one gesture. The Leda sculpture is a sweeping, curvilinear form that combines with the more rectilinear dimensions of the swan. The sculptures sit on one large, wedge-shaped cement base.
