In conjunction with David Smith: A Centennial, the Sackler Center’s interpretive exhibition of photographs, sketches, and source material provided insight into the artist’s working methods, how he drew inspiration from multiple sources, and how he viewed his own work in process and outdoors in the landscape.
The exhibition included photographs that Smith took to interpret or document his sculptures. These highly personal images reveal the artist’s complex understanding of his own works, their pictorial aspects, and his fascination with viewing his sculpture in the natural landscape.
