Inhaltsangabe: Lois Orswell (1904-1998) was a pioneering collector of abstract expressionist art and modern sculpture. She was notable not only for the quality of her acquisitions but also for her exceptional position as a woman collector at a time when men dominated the art world. Orswell focused her attention on sculpture and drawings, rather than paintings, and her collection features the work of such canonical artists as Kline, de Kooning, Rodin, Calder, Moore, Nevelson, and many others. Of all these artists, none was more important than David Smith, arguably the greatest American sculptor of the 20th century, and this volume highlights the close connection between collector and artist. This work publishes the correspondence between Orswell and Smith, shedding light on the sculptor's personality and professional practice. It also tells the history of the Orswell Collection, which numbers over 340 objects and is housed at the Harvard University Art Museums.
