Drawn from a critical period of Tony Smith's career, when the artist lived in Germany from 1953-55, the Louisenberg series is named after a German geological site. Containing paintings and drawings based on an abstract grid composed of circles--some self-contained, others fused into peanut-shaped groups of two or more--the work's modular approach reflects Smith's architectural ideas and prefigures his familiar sculptural methods.
