La forêt de Tacoma belongs to a set of works sculpted in wood inspired Stahly’s life-long love of forests. Among the best known from the same period are L’écho de la forêt, 1963, which is composed of four groups of sculptures that partition the public lobby at the Maison de la Radio in Paris, and of course L’été de la forêt, whose treatment is in a more primitivist vein.
