Louise Nevelson (American, 1899-1988)

Born in the Ukraine at the turn of the century, Louise Nevelson is a printmaker and sculptor who immigrated to Rockland, Maine in the early 20th century. By the early 1930s, she had moved to New York to attend school at the Art Students League, where she experimented with painting, printmaking, conceptual and performance art, before devoting herself more to sculpture. Her first solo exhibition was at the Nierendorf Gallery in 1941, after working under the likes of Diego Rivera, Hans Hoffman and Chaim Gross, studying in both the United States and Europe. Both her flatwork and sculpture share a tendency towards monochromatic compositions. An important, international 20th century artist with widespread recognition for her sculptural and environmental work, Nevelson received the Guggenheim Museum’s Great Artist Series Award in 1986 and her work is exhibited in numerous museum collections internationally.
