LONG ISLAND CITY, NY.- Jenny Dixon, Director, The Noguchi Museum, has announced that the second installment of The Isamu Noguchi Catalogue Raisonné will be published online on February 12, 2013. One of the first catalogues raisonné to be published digitally, the ongoing scholarly publication is dedicated to documenting the complete oeuvre of Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988), encompassing sculptures, drawings, models, architectural spaces, stage sets, and manufactured designs, as well as a chronology, bibliography, and list of exhibitions. Scheduled for completion in 2018, the publication is accessible free of charge, at

Ms. Dixon states, “The Isamu Noguchi Catalogue Raisonné is an enormous achievement, one for which the Museum owes a debt of gratitude to many, but most especially at this time for the crucial support of Tsuneko and Shoji Sadao. The Sadaos have played a critical role at The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum since its inception, and their generosity has now enabled work on the catalogue raisonné to continue for the foreseeable future.”

The first installment of the catalogue raisonné, published in November 2011, includes complete entries for more than 300 artworks and partial entries for more than 1,000 others for which research is in progress. The second chapter includes newly completed research on more than 400 sculptures, models, and drawings from Noguchi’s estate; checklists for key solo exhibitions from 1930 to 1970; hundreds of new images of artworks and exhibitions; and more than 500 new entries for artworks for which research is forthcoming, including a major selection of Noguchi’s drawings.

As work on the digital catalogue proceeds, the Museum continues to refine its customized online publishing platform. In addition to the new research mentioned above, the 2013 edition has several new features, including improved search and browsing methods. A document of the entire site’s contents can also be downloaded in PDF format, providing a yearly archive of the catalogue’s progress.

The completed publication will comprise detailed entries on over 3,000 artworks, in addition to exhibitions and publications. It will be the first comprehensive record of the life and work of Noguchi, updating and considerably expanding upon the 1980 catalogue of sculpture by Nancy Grove and Diane Botnick (Garland), and will be an indispensable resource for scholars, arts professionals, and collectors of Noguchi’s work.

Research continues towards the project’s completion; the third chapter, anticipated for release in early 2014, will be the first to include works from private collections.
