Louise Nevelson: Prints

February 17–July 31, 2016
First floor

This installation of lithographs features works by sculptor Louise Nevelson (1899–1988) created between 1963 and 1967 at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles. Nevelson attacked printmaking with many of the same approaches she used to create her sculptures, including her interest in silhouetted forms and layered elements. She created textural effects by impressing materials such as lace and cheesecloth onto inked lithographic stones, producing dynamic, multiple-paneled constructions. While many elements of her lithographic prints are reminiscent of her sculptures, assemblages, and installations, they distinguish themselves completely from the monochromatic pieces by their vivid colors. This exhibition provides a unique glimpse into the experimentations of one of the foremost sculptors of the 20th century.
