Renowned Sculptor, Robert Graham, Beloved Husband of Anjelica Huston, Dies

Robert Graham, Mexican born sculptor, whose work graces public spaces from Central Park, Detroit, Missouri, to Washington, D.C., was memorialized in L.A. yesterday. Graham was married to actor, Anjelica Huston, where they lived happily together at Venice Beach, California.

When Graham's death, at age 70, was announced last week, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said he and his wife, Maria Shriver, were "deeply saddened." Attendees at the funeral included family friends, Sharon Stone, Harrison Ford, and Jack Nicholson.
