Description Throughout his sixty-year-artistic-career, Hayes (1931-2013) created sculptural forms abstracted from organic forms encountered in daily life. His sculptures have affinities to Alexander Calder's playful stabiles (Hayes knew Calder in Paris) and to the shapes and colors of Matisse's late paper cutouts. Hayes's works are firmly rooted in Modern artists' interests in industrial materials and in commercial fabrication processes. His work is in more than 70 museum collections.

Hayes first studied with the noted American sculptor David Smith. From his teacher, Hayes mastered an appreciation for the permanence of steel. In Indiana, where Smith taught, both Smith and Hayes learned about forging from a local blacksmith. Smith began his Forging Series in 1955, and continued to create his revered Tanktotems. Hayes forged his own animal forms, sculptures that were quickly accepted into shows at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum’s inaugural exhibition in 1959.

This is one a group of rare landscapes that the artist painted in the 1990s. With their organic shapes and bright colors, they mirror his sculptural work.
