"I first saw this work when I was finishing my Ph.D. (in 1989), and when I heard I was selected as a Clark Fellow for 2002 one of my first thoughts was that I would be able to view this work at my leisure. I love the presence of this work, the way it, I mean he, looks back. I never tired of going to it for another look."
Art Historian and Clark Fellow, 2002
