Louise Nevelson (1900-1988) was a towering figure in postwar American art, exerting influence with her installations, sculptures made of found objects, and celebrated public artworks. This book focuses on all phases of the artist’s ascent to the top of the art world, from her works of the 1940s to complex pieces completed in the late 1980s. This illustrated book also demonstrates how Nevelson’s flamboyant style and carefully cultivated persona enhanced her reputation as an artist of the first rank. Essays by several scholars examine a wide variety of important issues and themes throughout Nevelson’s career, including the role of monochromatic colour in her painted wooden sculpture; the art-historical context of her work; her large-scale commissioned artworks, and her ‘self-fashioning’ as a celebrated artist, particularly her origins as a Ukrainian-born Jewish immigrant to the United States. An illustrated chronology and exhibition history accompany the text.
