The Artist

David Smith

David Smith was born on March 9, 1906 in Decatur, Indiana and spent most of his early life in the Midwest. In 1926, he moved to New York and began taking classes at the Art Students League of New York where he came into contact with work by the Russian Constructivists as well as Picasso Both would later prove to be artistic influences. Throughout the 1930s, Smith was limited in his artistic output by the Great Depression and often took jobs working for the Works Progress Administration. During the Second World War, he was briefly paused creating art, to work as a welder and a
part time teacher. By 1945-46, Smith was finally able to release his pent up artistic energy and produced a large amount of artworks. A 1950 Guggenheim grant allowed him to work with stainless steel for the first time.
