The Figurative Work of David Smith

Featured image, the 1964 enamel on canvas, "Untitled (Nude)," is reproduced from Points of Power, the first publication to trace the figurative impulse in the work of Abstract Expressionist David Smith. In her catalog essay, Candida Smith, the artist's daughter, writes, "The artist... kept his distance. He gave his 'models' no direction. The women here have no more concern for the artist or his view of them than would a horse or a leopard, and thus they have the same animal power and unconscious sensuality. They ask to be seen as something other than 'figures'"
