Vintage hardback coffee table book featuring the work of artist, David Smith. By Knoedler & Company New York, published in 1995. First edition.
"In 1964 David Smith painted a series of female nudes that he thought enough of to exhibit with his Cubi sculptures, which seem so different from them in their geometrical vocabulary and celebration of light and space. The paintings are, in fact, intimately related to these great sculptures, and to Smith's sculpture in general, and wonderfully revealing about Smith the artist and man. With the most direct and economical means - black or brown enamel lines running and spilling across undifferentiated grounds - smith channeled into currents of paint some of his most basic feelings about art, nature, women and himself."
