23rd Psalm Sculpture
created by
Jane Davis Doggett

M.F.A., Yale University School of Art & Architecture, 1956

In a stunning modern building by César Pelli,
Jane Doggett's sculpture is an outstanding and
fitting addition. She has expressed the passages
of the 23rd Psalm in 12 boxes wrapped with
color geometric images — IconoChromes
which she originated in her first book, Talking
Graphics. Her hand-drawn images are computer-
scanned in "layers" for each color segment and
digitally printed in a process she calls "electronic
silk screening." Her Talking Graphics panels that
were exhibited in the Vincent Scully Gallery at
Yale for six months in 2010 tap into her Yale roots
as a student of Josef Albers in the Bauhaus
heyday. The sculpture was acquired in 2012 for
the permanent Yale University Art Collection.
