Stunning, long kinetic sterling earrings by Modernist Art Smith, c. 1950. These are screw back earrings and measure 2 1/4" long. They are in fine original condition and both earrings bear his signature on the reverse. They weigh 16 grams total. Art Smith was known for making jewelry with concern for ornamenting the human form and his designs took into account the part of the body the piece was made to adorn. His jewelry is quite dramatic, primitive inspired and mostly biomorphic in form. These earrings are a magnificent example of his spectacular creations, many of which can be found in museum collections.
