Ismael Smith, the beauty and the monsters
Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. From 23 June to 17 september 2017.
The exhibition will cover the entire Ismael Smith's trajectory (Barcelona, 1886-White Plains, New York, 1972) and will reunite various works from the diverse disciplines that this artist practiced: sculpture, drawing, illustration, posters, graphic design, interior design, ceramics, jewelry design, engravings, book-plates and even painting, a hidden facet of the artist. There will be about seventy sculptures shown, more than one hundred and fifty drawings and monument projects, about fifty engravings, a set of jewelry and a complete book-plates collection, the activity that brought him fame in the United States.
