In November 2012, Jaume Plensa oversaw the installation of his large-scale work Laura on the Albright-Knox’s campus. This twenty-foot-tall sculpture of a female head is the artist’s rendering of a fourteen-year-old family friend from Barcelona who the artist chose as a subject because he felt she embodied a classic and timeless beauty. Plensa intentionally depicted the girl with her eyes closed to emphasize the world of dreams and ideas possible to a youth of that age.
