Louise Nevelson, Limited Edition Poetic Black and Grey Etching with Aquatint

$4,500

About

Louise Nevelson (1899 – 1988) A beautiful and poetic black, white, and grey etching with aquatint by Louise Nevelson. Beloved for her monochromatic wood wall assemblages, Nevelson actively pursued printmaking in the 1950's and 60's during a period of renewed artistic vigor and creative exploration. This work flattens the sculptor's traditional three-dimensional preoccupation with volume and texture into a layering of materials and modes. Nevelson juxtaposes a vigorous abstract line drawing and a dreamlike figurative landscape. They, in turn, are layered over a shadowy, tactile background on which Nevelson has imprinted an intermittent honeycomb pattern, made with found lace and cheesecloth she used to add texture. The result is both graphic and ghostly, as immersive an environment as her wood reliefs but freed from the constraints of their long construction. Signed and numbered 8/20. Matted and framed.
