Inspiration and the artist

Added on by Ellen Halloran.

Many artists have found inspiration in gardens and in the shapes and forms of the natural world.  This idea is beautifully realized in the Monumental Sculptures of artist Manolo Valdés found in the New York Botanical Garden (Bronx, NY).  These huge outdoor sculptures incorporate female heads and the forms of leaves, ferns, palm fronds - and even trellises.
