This fully-illustrated catalogue was published to accompany the recent exhibition Leon Polk Smith: Prairie Moon at Lisson Gallery in New York (September – October 2021). Edited by art historian, curator and writer Lynn Zelevansky, it features new scholarship by Zelevansky; Elizabeth Buhe, a twentieth- and twenty-first-century art scholar; and a reproduction of a 1968 essay by the legendary critic Lawrence Alloway. Representing three generations, these diverse perspectives provide a rich and complex discussion on the artist’s legacy, and unprecedented insight to his career.
