Item Details
Metamorphosis is a beautiful oil on canvas painting done by Hassel Smith that embellishes a wall at San Francisco International Airport.
A leading proponent of abstract expressionism in the Bay Area, Hassel Smith’s paintings in the 1950s and 1960s were influenced by the artist’s love of jazz and dancing, which he translated on canvas into bold, energetic and gestural forms.
