I first came across Nevelson’s work many years ago in an article on the noted fashion designer Arnold Scaasi’s home published in Architectural Digest where one of her large sculptures was in his living room.

Nevelson (1899-1998) was an important figure in the post-war New York art scene known for her garnering of scraps of wood and other materials from her local streets and transforming them into free-standing or wall-mounted works of small or large size, often in black or white.  This exhibition surveys her work from the mid-50s until her death in 1988.
