Tanktotem VII

David Smith has been widely heralded as one of the greatest sculptors of the American century.
Each sculpture in Smith’s Tanktotem series which begun in 1952 and completed in the early 1960s, includes the round lid in whole or part of a commercially manufactured boiler tank. To a greater or lesser degree all of these sculptures are anthropomorphic; Tanktotem VII is a particularly elegant and refined work in the series.
It is this graceful beauty combined with its rigor that makes Tanktotem VII so appealing to me.
