This exhibit examines the work of jewelrymaker Arthur Smith (1917–1982) through a collection acquired by the Brooklyn Museum of Art from the artist's estate. One of the leading modernist jewelers of the mid-1900s, Smith was inspired by surrealism, biomorphism and primitivism, and a deep awareness of the female form. As a result, his jewelry is dynamic in its size and shape, but remains lightweight and wearable.
