David Smith: American Sculptor (#121)

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.
