Medals for DishonorBook - 1996
This catalogue examines a major though little-known body of David Smith's work. Enraged by the rise of fascism that he witnessed while visiting Europe in the 1930s, Smith began to work on the "Medals for Dishonor." Approaching the tradition of commemorative medallions ironically, Smith denounces historical players who willingly contributed to the horrors of war.
