Sculpture by David Smith in the Storm King Art Center Collection
circa October 1971
The sculptures by David Smith, which form a significant section in the collection of Storm King Art Center, cover an illustrious decade in the artist's work from 1954 through 1964. They are installed in extensive sculpture gardens much as they were when David Smith completed and placed them within his own fields at Bolton Landing and observed them throughout the changing seasons. The thirteen sculptures came to the Storm King Art Center collection as a gift from the Ralph E. Ogden Foundation in the spring of 1967. They stand as a tribute to a most distinguished American sculptor and serve as a focal point in a developing collection of 20th century sculpture.
