Louise Nevelson

Atmosphere and Environment XI

Louise Nevelson worked as a painter, printmaker, and ceramicist, yet sculpture is her most important and enduring legacy. Initially, the artist composed exclusively with discarded pieces of wood; later in her career she began creating with steel, to place work outdoors. Nevelson traditionally painted her sculptures in one color, usually black, to unify the composition. This is one of a series of structures based on gardens and natural environments. The sculpture is most effective when viewed from different angles, as the screen appears to open and close when one walks around it.
