Johnson, who is now age 85, is the grandson of Johnson & Johnson co-founder Robert Wood Johnson. He is also the Founder of Grounds for Sculpture, a forty-two acre park in Hamilton, New Jersey that features large–scale sculptures inspired by famous Impressionist paintings, and is the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds property, complete with three of its major historic buildings.

This piece, La Promenade comes from the Grounds for Sculpture collection based on the central figures in Gustave Caillebotte’s painting Paris Street; Rainy Day.
