Caviar20 is excited to be offering this evocative print by the inimitable Louise Nevelson - one of the most revered and unique sculptors of the 20th century.

Nevelson is renowned for her mysterious and complex sculptures. She was also an active printmaker, experimenting with different techniques and approaches, and working with some of the best print-making studios in the United States.

Nevelson, whether working in sculpture or in two-dimensions has a strict palette; almost exclusively black. While there are works with elements in white, gold or raw wood, Nevelson almost entirely avoids color. When Nevelson does use color it is used sparingly but to maximum effect. In this work a collage-like shape in a soft but striking mauve, seems to enable the black elements, like the hypnotic sphere, to truly pop. 

Over the last few years there has been tremendous momentum in both interest and appreciation of Nevelson's work. In November of 2014, a new auction record of just below $1 million was established for one of Nevelson's signature black construction sculptures. (However this is still a bargain considering the auction records of her male colleagues such as John Chamberlain, $4.7 million, or Joseph Cornell, $7.7 million)

We've also noticed that more and more public collections are re-installing her works in their displays from  their permanent collections (the Whitney in New York City and the Pérez Art Museum in Miami are notable examples)

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.
