Published by Galerie Gmurzynska. Foreword by Krystyna Gmurzynska, Mathias Rastorfer. Text by Robert Indiana, Bill Katz, Anthony Haden-Guest.
Louise Nevelson (1899–1988) is one of the most important sculptors of the last century, famous for her large-scale, monochromatic wood assemblages and outdoor works. Nevelson was born in Czarist Russia--immigrating to the US with her family at the age of three--and had her first solo exhibition at the prestigious Nierendorf Gallery in 1941. This extensively illustrated publication--with 157 images in color--is the first to focus on her collage work. Made throughout her career and every bit as important as her parallel work of the time, Nevelson’s collages have been out of the public eye for three decades. With never-before-published documentary images alongside personal essays by Robert Indiana and Bill Katz, this long overdue publication repositions these treasures of art history--as well as the reputation of their creator--for today’s audience.
