Catalogue Note

"They are highly respected works, with dynamic energy and jubilant spirit. Barry Flanagan, the renowned Welsh sculptor, created his jovial jackrabbit to celebrate human whimsy — that spontaneous emotion we share with animalkind."

Raymond Ward Bissell, Shared Space: the Joseph M. Cohen Collection, Kansas City 2010, p. 60
