Description
In an opinion regarding the Olympics sculpture, the photo caption reads: The fact that Robert Graham's bronze nudes are anatomically explicit is not the sculpture's downfall. It is the Arch of Triumph's overdone, baroque quality--with its bronze, decorated columns and gold leaf--that has created a betrayal of the artist's unique and elegant style. Photo date: June 4, 1984.
