The Artist: Louise Nevelson (Russian-American, 1899-1988)
Louise Nevelson (1899 – 1988) was an American sculptor, painter and print maker. (28 1/2in. x 23in.) Lithograph with embossing. She is, perhaps, best known for her monumental, monochromatic, wooden wall pieces and outdoor sculptures. Born in Czarist Russia, she emigrated with her family to the United States in the early 20th century. After attending art classes at the Art Students League of New York, she had here first solo exhibition in 1941. A student of Hans Hofmann and Chaim Gross, Nevelson experimented with early conceptual art using found objects, and painted and made prints before dedicating her herself primarialy to sculpture. She usually created her sculptures out of wood, and appeared puzzle-like, with multiple intricately cut pieces placed into wall sculptures or independently standing pieces, often 3-D. A unique feature of her work is that her figures are often painted in monochromatic black or white. This work is similar, as she adhered a series of embossed lead images to very heavy paper which gives the piece the 3-D image like here sculpture. A figure in the international art scene, Nevelson was showcased at the 31st Venice Biennale. Her work is seen in major collections in museums and corporations. Louise Nevelson remains one of the most important figures in 20th-century American sculpture.
