MORE INFORMATION:


In the 1950s he began an independent series of calligraphic egg-and-ink drawings, using a medium that he invented, a viscous mixture of egg yolk and Indian ink. Egg made the ink thicker, yet allowed for visual depth within the brushwork, giving it an added physicality (David Smith by Joan Pachner, New York, Phaidon Press, 2013, p 90)
