Filmmaker, painter, anthropologist, musicologist and occultist – Harry Smith (1923-1991) was an incomparable polymath and seminal figure in the realms of beat culture and avant-garde art. Smith’s kaleidoscopic experimental films have influenced generations of artists and cinephiles.

‘The Collections of Harry Smith, Catalogue Raisonné’ series spotlights and indexes his eclectic research obsessions. Volume two focuses on Smith’s erudite study of string figures, an age-old form of spiritual and recreational play that he passionately chronicled in multiple mediums. It contains photographs of the extant mounted string figures created by Smith alongside interviews, film stills and selections from his anthropological research.
