Contemporary Art by Shirley Matzke

This monumental lovely piece is by Shirley Matzke a NY artist who was very good friends with the top art critic as well as David Smith. She was responsible for archiving Favid Smiths work for the Whitney museum.
Once his death in 1965, the exhibitions and literature on the work of David Smith have continued to overlook his drawings. The Museum would not have been able to present this first comprehensive survey without the gracious assistance of the executors of David Smith’s estate, Clement Greenberg and Rebecca Smith, daughter of the artist. Throughout the preparation of the project, Paul Cummings received generous cooperation from Lawrence Rubin and Marian R. Moffett of M. Knoedler & Company, Inc., representatives of the estate. It is commendable that David Smith’s drawings have been so meticulously and carefully catalogued and maintained by Shirley Matzke of the David Smith estate, without whose aid this project would not have been possible.
