About Robert Smit

One of the leading goldsmiths of his day, Dutch artist Robert Smit took an approach that blurred the boundaries of the discipline of traditional jewelry making with architecture, painting, and sculpture. Defined by vivid color, orthogonal lines, and vibrant gold, Smit created graphic designs, translating the two-dimensional into three-dimensions in works that oftentimes echoed the playful and poetic paintings of modernist artists of the day.
