One of the best-known American sculptors of the modern period, David Smith (1906–1965) was a pioneer of abstract sculpture. He revolutionized the possibilities of metal sculpture by introducing the industrial process of welding, enabling him to create the most extraordinarily balanced compositions – using metal to 'draw in space'. Predominantly known as a sculptor, the book also sheds light on his prolific practice of drawing, sketching, writing and photographing his sculptures.
Artist: David Smith
