Born in New Orleans, Lee Smith moved to Dallas when he was six. He had no formal art training, but started to paint in 1974 and had his first one man exhibition at the University of Texas at Arlington in 1979. Smith paints works that remind us of our childhoods. Blocks and Sticks is similar to the paintings that were so well received when, in 1984, Lee Smith was one of 26 artists to represent the United States at the prestigious Venice Biennale in Italy. His works are in the collections of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Tyler Museum of Art.
Minor paint loss along central left edge of canvas, otherwise good condition.
