David Smith: Points of PowerDavid Smith: Points of Power

Published by Galerie Gmurzynska.
Edited by Sally Fisher. Foreword by Krystyna Gmurzynska, Mathias Rastorfer. Text by Candida Smith, Sarah Hamill, Allyn C. Shepard.

David Smith: Points of Power is the first publication to trace the figurative impulse running throughout the oeuvre of Abstract Expressionist sculptor and painter David Smith (1906–1965). Beautifully designed and printed, it provides a broad overview of his figurative explorations in painting, sculpture, photography and ceramics, which intensified in the years before his death. Most of these are female nudes, worked by Smith into strong, calligraphic forms that often extend the viscous fluidity of enamel (on canvas or linen) into near-abstraction. Smith’s ceramic plates offer an even broader range of figurative treatments, from a few minimal incised lines to more defined nudes evoking Greek pottery. The catalogue features an introduction by the artist’s daughter, Candida Smith, as well as a scholarly essay by Sarah Hamill and a wealth of archival photographs by Alexander Liberman, taken during the last weekend of Smith’s life.

David Smith: Works, Writings, InterviewsDavid Smith: Works, Writings, Interviews

Published by Ediciones Poligrafa.
Text by Sarah Hamill. Interview by Frank O'Hara.

Almost single-handedly, David Smith (1906-1965) transformed the significance of sculpture as a genre in American art. Before him, sculpture was almost a marginal activity; after him, the floodgates opened for artists like Donald Judd and Richard Serra to build on his achievements and forge a uniquely American idiom for sculpture. Coming into his own in 1940s New York, Smith made inspirational friendships with painters like Gorky, de Kooning and Pollock, and his sculptural abstractions were recruited for the Abstract Expressionist cause. Smith's opus magnus was his Cubi series, undertaken in the early 1960s. The 28 Cubi sculptures were composed of a column of balanced cubes, rectangular solids and cylinders with spheroidal or flat endcaps, that seemed to reorder a Cubist or Cézanne-esque vocabulary into a precarious metal totem pole. Poligrafa's introductory volume to David Smith is edited by art historian Sarah Hamill, and includes a previously unpublished interview with Smith by poet Frank O'Hara. Hamill's commentary orients Smith within a lineage of metal sculpture and underscores the importance of his relationship with photography.

David Smith: A CentennialDavid Smith: A Centennial

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Essays by Carmen Giménez, Rosalind E. Krauss, David Anfam, Michael Brenson and Paul Hayes Tucker.

Deemed the "foremost sculptor of his generation" by art critic Clement Greenberg, David Smith, who lived from 1906 to 1965, is about to be celebrated in his first retrospective since 1969--to be held at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, from February through May of 2006. David Smith: A Centennial features new photographs of nearly every selected sculpture--110 pieces dating from 1932 to 1965, including important examples from each period, many rarely seen in public. Essays from writers including David Anfam, Michael Brenson, Rosalind Krauss and Paul Hayes Tucker tackle key areas, such as Smith's relationship to the painters of the New York School, the dual development of his family life and series sculpture through the 1950s and 60s, and his use of the landscape outside his studio in formulating his late works. Perhaps most importantly, David Smith: A Centennial also features the most comprehensive research on Smith yet published, including a newly compiled and extended bibliography; a comprehensive exhibition history; a chronology; and an illustrated checklist tracking provenance, exhibition history, and bibliographic references for each featured sculpture, finally bringing scholarship on Smith to the level of that on other important American artists of his generation, such as Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. David Smith: A Centennial considers Smith's oeuvre as a totality, and offers readers the chance to understand the complexity of his aesthetic concerns as well as his impact on the course of American sculpture, and American art at large.

David Smith: Medals For DishonorDavid Smith: Medals For Dishonor

Published by Independent Curators International, New York.
Artwork by David Smith. Contributions by Dore Ashton. Text by Michael Brenson, Matthew Marks.

This catalogue examines a major though little-known body of David Smith's work. Enraged by the rise of fascism that he witnessed while visiting Europe in the 1930s, Smith began to work on the “Medals for Dishonor.” Approaching the tradition of commemorative medallions ironically, Smith denounces historical players who willingly contributed to the horrors of war.

Photographs by Ugo Mulas

Published by Charta.
Artwork by David Smith. Edited by Giovanni Carandente. Contributions by Carmen Gimenez, Candida Smith.

The late David Smith is regarded worldwide as one of the most important American sculptors. Through the photographs of Uga Mulas, David Smith in Italy documents the exhibition of his work as it was displayed at in Milan's dramatic PradaMilanoArte. The exhibition was comprised of works that were loaned by the most prestigious private and institutional collections in the United States, and was curated by Smith's daughter. It included 13 large sculptures, 24 mixed-media works, watercolors and several original photographs by Mulas. Smith's artistic relationship with Mulas (and indeed with Italy) dates back to 1962, when Smith created an exhibition for the Spoleto Two Worlds Festival and was photographed by Mulas.
