Glittering Goodbye

Glittering Goodbye
The L.A.-based sculptor Robert Graham, who died in December at age 70, had a star-studded send-off in early January, one befitting a renowned artist who happened to be married to the Oscar winner Anjelica Huston. Passing through the great bronze doors that Graham created for the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, where his funeral was held, were not only Graham’s artist pals, like Ed Moses, but also big Hollywood names, including Huston’s ex, Jack Nicholson wearing his signature shades. Huston read a Yeats poem and the eulogy was delivered by Maria Shriver, who was accompanied by her husband, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
