Published to accompany an exhibition marking the 100th anniversary of Pollock and Smith’s births, this catalogue reproduces five small sculptures, all dating from the mid-1950s, including the last two sculptures Pollock made and three of Smith’s earliest. Two Pollocks and one Smith were made on the same weekend in July 1956, in the backyard of Smith’s home, only weeks before Pollock’s death in a car crash. An essay by Eileen Costello provides a detailed analysis of the five works while elucidating Pollock’s career-long involvement with sculpture and the two friends’ development as artists.
