As always, Caviar20 is thrilled to present the esteemed work of Louise Nevelson - one of the most revered and unique artists of the 20th century.  (Also, an artist who continues to be undervalued - compared to her male contemporaries. Yet there is also tremendous buying opportunity for the savvy collector)

Although Nevelson is best known for her work as a sculptor, like many of her American contemporaries, Nevelson explored the many different branches of printmaking, as the field experienced a mid-century renaissance.  

This etching is a particularly rare and unique example of Louise Nevelson's work as it features figures and was executed extremely early in her career. To us, this work recalls Jean Dubuffet, with it's intricately-lined, abstract characters. Nevelson's figures, which border on naive or even tribal, are still executed in her signature dark palette and mysterious intensity. 

Nevelson's work is positioned in an interesting chronology within the canon of art history, situated between Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism. Her work has had an undeniable influence on a host of significant artists ranging from Tony Cragg to Louise Bourgeois. 

To learn more about Louise Nevelson, Caviar20 recommends the interactive feature from the exhibition "Louise Nevelson: Constructing a Legend"

In 2016 Louise Nevelson was Caviar20's fastest selling artist. As interest in her work is compounding rapidly, her prints are, like the rest of her work, becoming less accessible. This is a fantastic work for a young collector, or to compliment an existing sculpture in your collection.
