Intrinsic to this hope was a conviction that his monumental sculpture belonged in the elements, with sky and earth as its visible reference points." "The Fields of David Smith is published to coincide with a three-year exhibition in the expansive landscape of the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, New York. The aim of both book and exhibition has been to recapture the experience of viewing Smith's work during his lifetime, when it was deployed with care and exuberance in ever-changing arrangements in his fields at Bolton Landing in the Adirondacks."--Jacket." ;
