Louise Nevelson

LOUISE NEVELSON "SIX POINTED STAR" 1980

Louise Nevelson (1899-1988) is one of the most revered and unique artists of the 20th century.  

There has been a tremendous renewal of interest and appreciation for Nevelson’s work in recent years. In 2021, a new auction record of $1.35 million was established for one of Nevelson’s signature wall sculptures. 

Despite such monumental achievements, Nevelson remains significantly undervalued compared to her male peers. While this is troubling and surprising, there is a great opportunity for savvy collectors to acquire top works that are bound to appreciate.

While Nevelson is best known for her work as a sculptor, like many of her American contemporaries, Nevelson expanded her practice as an artist by exploring the many different branches of printmaking as the medium experienced a mid-century renaissance.  

"Six Point Star" is a paradigm of Nevelson's printmaking practice. Nevelson utilized the rare printmaking technique of cast paper, whereby paper fiber or pulp is formed using a mold, and employed to create a relief. The striking features of the work have a classic Nevelson form and elaborately patterned texture, in a mink-like color.

Not surprisingly this work can be found in several prominent museum collections including the MoMA the United States Library of Congress, the Brooks Museum of Art, and several others. 

Today, Louise Nevelson’s work can be found in major museum collections around the world. An increasing number of public collections are reinstalling her works in their displays from their permanent collections including the Whitney in New York City, which has the largest holding of her oeuvre internationally.
