Despite occupying a significant portion of Louise Nevelson’s (1899–1988) creative output, her collages still today remain largely unexplored, with only a few publications and essays dedicated to them. The fact that this body of work was exhibited only on rare occasions during her lifetime (and always alongside sculpture) is undoubtedly a factor in the delay of full scholarship on the subject. Nonetheless, Nevelson was often quoted commenting that “the way I think is collage,” and already by 1960, Jean Arp declared in one of his poems that “Louise Nevelson has a grandfather, probably without knowing it: Kurt Schwitters,” thereby positioning her work within the lineage of avant-garde collage in modern art.” This book gathers an extensive collection of these collages alongside essays by Yuval Etgar and Pia Gottschaller, and a conversation between Gió Marconi and Maria Nevelson.

In 1967, for her first museum retrospective, Louise Nevelson (1899–1988) was given carte blanche to transform the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University into an all-emcompassing, theatrical environment for her sculpture. Nevelson installed her show across the whole museum, draping the walls of the permanent collection with the colors that reflected the black, white, gold and navy palette of her works. Louise Nevelson: I Must Recompose the Environment includes previously unpublished exhibition layouts (annotated by Nevelson), installation photographs and texts that place this show in the context of Nevelson's career and the museum’s early history. This publication accompanies the now out-of-print catalog of the 1967 show organized in collaboration with the Whitney Museum and serves as a document both of the then-nascent museum and the solidifying legacy of an artistic icon.

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.
