Embracing factory methods of construction, building on the legacy of cubism, and turning his back on European carving and casting traditions, David Smith (1906–1965) transformed postwar sculpture. His body of work, contemporary with the New York School in painting, and his pioneering placement of sculptures in a natural setting are foundational for present-day sculpture and installation art. This three-volume boxed set comprehensively details the entirety of Smith's sculptural oeuvre. It is now the definitive catalogue raisonné and supplants the one constructed by Rosalind E. Krauss in 1977. With Christopher Lyon as Editor and Project Manager and Susan J. Cooke as Research Editor, the volumes also contain a Foreword by Rebecca and Candida Smith, essays by Michael Brenson, Sarah Hamill, Marc-Christian Roussel, Christopher Lyon, and a chronology by Tracee Ng.
