Published to accompany an exhibition marking the 100th anniversary of Pollock’s 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 sculptures.

The two Pollocks and one of the Smith works 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 on August 11. An essay by Eileen Costello provides a detailed analysis of the five works while elucidating Pollock’s career-long involvement with sculpture and the friends’ development as artists.
