||The first complete monograph dedicated to one of the most important American artists of the twentieth century. Louise Nevelson (1899-1988) produced her first series of landscape sculptures during the mid-fifties. Shortly thereafter, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Museum and The Museum of Modern Art acquired her work. This gorgeous monograph presents an impressive collection of 560 works: 100 large-format works in full-page reproductions and 460 reproductions of installations, collages, and designs, arranged in chronological order. The works are accompanied by some 200 images of documents, photographs, magazine articles, as well as fifty works by her contemporaries, a broad historical documentation of the period, and a timeline of the historic, political, artistic, and cultural events that shaped the artist’s world. The volume is completed with a collection of quotes by the artist on a great variety of topics, a bibliography and a list of collective exhibitions.
