LOUISE NEVELSON "UJA", 1981
Louise Nevelson (1899-1988) is one of the most original and collected sculptors of the 20th century. Numerous examples of her work have achieved six-figure results at auction. Interestingly collectors at this level do not necessarily favor "early work" or a particular era. Top prices are achieved because of the intricacy and impact of the composition whether the work was created in the early 1960's or 1980's.
More and more public collections are (re-)installing her works in displays of their permanent collections (the Whitney in New York City and the Pérez Art Museum in Miami are notable examples)
This wood sculpture is a rare example of significant size that is at an accessible price point. To our knowledge it is the only wood multiple Nevelson created. (Click here and here to see examples of her editioned sculptures that were done in cast resin)
Like the best of Nevelson's work "UJA" alludes to tribal art and utopian or post-apocalyptic architecture.
