Episode Details

David Smith was one of America's most important sculptors of the twentieth century. Smith's ideas about art and his methods are revealed in archival footage of the artist, through reminiscences of the sculptor by his daughters, and by fellow artists Helen Frankenthaler and the late Robert Motherwell. The film also takes the viewer to Bolton Landing in upstate New York where Smith had his studio.
