Louise nevelson belongs to a generation of manhattan-based painters and sculptors who were born at the close of the nineteenth century and whose careers spanned the twentieth, coinciding with the development of modernism in America.

Like several of the artists who later became known as abstract expressionist painters and sculptors, in the1920′s, nevelson travelled to Paris and also studied in new York at the art Students league.

it wasn’t until the late 1940′s and during the 1950′s that modernism came into its own in teh united states adn artists who had been working steadily through the 1920′s and 1930′s developed a mature style.

Each of these artists combined the predominant avant-garde influences of cubism and surrealism as well as the writings of Carl Jung, freud and Sartre with their own personal concerns to create the distinctive works for which

they are best known.

Nevelson’s tabletop sculptures collaged from found pieces of wood metamorphosed first into wall sculptures and finally into total environments.

I hope you enjoy this post as I so love her work! Have a great day!

Love, Jamie
