Caviar20 is excited to be offering this fantastic sculpture by the inimitable Louise Nevelson - one of the most revered and unique sculptors of the 20th century. 

Over the last few years there has been tremendous momentum in both interest and appreciation of her work. In November of 2014, a new auction record of just below $1 million was established for one of Nevelson's signature black construction sculptures. (However this is still a bargain considering the auction records of her male colleagues such as John Chamberlain, $4.7 million, or Joseph Cornell, at $7.7 million)

We've also noticed that more and more public collections are re-installing her works in their displays from  their permanent collections (the Whitney in New York City and the Pérez Art Museum in Miami are notable examples)

So it comes at no surprise that the previous Nevelson works we've recently offered, such as "The Dark Ellipse" and "City Sun-scape" , have been quickly snatched up by savvy collectors. Louise Nevelson was Caviar20's fastest selling artist in 2016. 

"Collegiate" is a striking table-top sculpture that appears to be a decal or award from some future society. Like the best of Nevelson's work there are allusions to tribal art and utopian or post-apocalyptic architecture.

This is an interesting example of the "Collegiate" sculpture as it has been mounted to a white acrylic background (as opposed to the smoked acrylic version)

Where does the inventory ship from?

-Our inventory is divided between New York and Toronto. 

Where do you ship to?

-We can ship anywhere. Typically when we ship within North America we prefer to use FedEx Ground. To Europe, Asia and beyond we generally use DHL. Occasionally we use CanadaPost, but will notify the client if this is the best option. 

How much does it cost to ship?

-For shipments within North America, we typically charge a flat rate fee. Many items on our site will list the rate. For shipping outside of North America, we can easily provide a quote and will look for the most efficient and economical option.

Most of the items on our site can be easily shipped internationally.

Occasionally we will recommend that an artwork be removed from its frame for shipping. Larger framed works are typically framed with plexiglass. 

We export over 80% of what we sell, so we are comfortable shipping anywhere. 

Are there additional taxes or fees?

-There is no duty on art entering the United States.

When a work is valued above $2,500 usd there is a possibility of tax of 0.35%, but this is applied sporadically. There can similarly be an additional fee for customs brokerage and this can range from $20 - $65. US Taxes, duties and customs brokerage are not included in our flat rate shipping. However most of our shipments to the US enter without any additional fees. 

Note shipping fees are not refundable.
