Here is another one of his sculptures at the San Francisco MOMA:
Here is another sculpture in wood, also at the SFMOMA, which I like the best of the three. It is called "Semaphore".

Here is a picture that I found of a party in his studio. You can see some interesting mobiles and stabiles. Hey, that guy on drums looks like Bobby Kennedy!
I've tried to find more information about this artist via the Internet without much success. Wikipedia mentions his name as being one of the Coit Tower muralists from the California School of Fine Arts. Since there is also a painting in the holdings at the SFMOMA I suspect this is the same artist. I also found this memorial on the Internet but it appears to be about another artist with the same name - his birth/death dates do not match the dates listed in SFMOMA and there is no mention of Coit Tower or any involvement with San Francisco.
