It is unfortunate that Smithson only reached the age of 35 , otherwise other beautiful projects would have been realized, of which a great deal in the Netherlands because Smitshon was possibly the first land art artist who became famous over here because of his land art project near Emmen. His “Spiral Jetty” is probably his best known project, but for these travellers who like to visit a classic land art work. The Broken Circle Spiral Hill at Emmen is an absolute must. There are 2 important Smithson publications available at www.ftn-books.com
