The artist wrote, “After Cézanne a lot of artists made art for art’s sake, and when I became an Abstract Expressionist in New York I was among them. In 1953 and ‘54 I moved on from there to again deal with man through my art. The New York school and interlude for me was too private and removed from man. It did not speak to the people I was born and raised with, the ones I’ve learned the most timeless lessons from and admire with my whole heart. John Wayne spoke for these people. He was a perfect figure for me to sculpt.”
