Biography[]

Don Newman, accoding to Claudia Kishi, is a "pretty famous" artist. Claudia saw some of it in a museum in New York last year, and she loved it. He uses these big, rounded shapes, sort of like Henry Moore’s stuff. But he’s also influenced by Brancusi–these simple but radical forms. And some of his most recent stuff is a little bit like Noguchi’s huge architectural style. His early work is really different. It looks more like Giacometti’s long, thin human figures.”

Claudia calls him to talk to him about the theft, he tells her more about his art. He had created hiding spaces in his art for his children. He gets Claudia two tickets to his show and she takes her father with her.

Don helps Claudia solve the mystery at the end of the book.
