    First achieving critical and popular acclaim in the 1960s, Marisol Escobar created art that combined abstraction and figuration with observant wit. She was best known for sculpture that combined wooden and multimedia elements and for her ingenious works on paper. Noel, 1963, features repeated forms that radiate from the work’s center, which upon closer inspection are in fact a multitude of fingertips, an example of the formal power and inventive humor characteristic of Marisol’s art.
