David Smith made drawings throughout his career, sometimes as studies for his sculptures. Unlike the slow process and large amount of work required to make a sculpture, drawing allowed Smith to work quickly and spontaneously, forming images from his imagination into shapes on paper. While working at his home in Bolton Landing, New York, he often spent the day making sculptures in his factory-like studio, and in the evening he would draw in his “clean studio.” Smith once described his drawings as “studies for sculpture, sometimes what sculpture is, sometimes what sculpture never can be.”
