This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A sculptor of minimalist outdoor pieces, many of them linear with great volume and of dark, smooth metal, Tony Smith was from South Orange, New Jersey. He first trained as an architect and in 1939 began working for Frank Lloyd Wright. He also did some painting as a part-time student at the Art Students League but did not begin sculpting until 1956 when he was age 44. His first exhibitions were in 1964.

Smith became close friends with Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothco, and Clyfford Still, and his sculpture shows their abstract influence.

Smith was also a teacher in various institutions including New York University, Cooper Union, Pratt Institute, Bennington College and Hunter College.

A major retrospective, "Tony Smith: Architect, Painter, Sculptor," was held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1998.
