David Smith sculpture

by David Smith | 24 August 2021
Hardback
A monumental new work of scholarship on a luminary of twentieth-century art   "I'm not sure I have ever seen a catalogue raisonné as beautiful, as magnificent, as the new publication on the oeuvre of the great American sculptor David Smith."-Michael Fried, Bookforum   Embracing factory methods of construction, building on the legacy of cubism, and turning his back on European carving and casting traditions, David Smith (1906-1965) transformed postwar sculpture. His body of work, contemporary with the New York School in painting, and his pioneering placement of sculptures in a natural setting are foundational for present-day sculpture and installation art. This three-volume boxed set comprehensively details the entirety of Smith's sculptural oeuvre. It is now the definitive catalogue raisonné and supplants the one constructed by Rosalind E. Krauss in 1977. With Christopher Lyon as Editor and Susan J. Cooke as Research Editor, the volumes also contain a Foreword by Rebecca and Candida Smith, essays by Michael Brenson, Sarah Hamill, Marc-Christian Roussel, Christopher Lyon, and a chronology by Tracee Ng. Throughout the volumes, reproductions of documents and images, including many photographs, paintings, drawings, and sketches by the artist, offer fresh insights into Smith's methods and creative thought. Handsomely designed and generously illustrated with fine color reproductions, this catalogue raisonné is both a sumptuous object and an essential scholarly resource. Distributed for the Estate of David Smith
