$4,000

Louise Nevelson is one of the most revered and unique sculptors of the 20th century.

Her work has had an undeniable influence on a host of significant artists ranging from Tony Cragg to Louise Bourgeois. 

This screen print with gold foil overlay depicts Nevelson's monumental public sculpture "Bicentennial Dawn" commissioned for the Philadelphia Courthouse. 

The sculpture was commissioned by the US government in celebration of the country's 200th birthday and the "Art in Architecture" program. 

Possibly her largest single work of art, the sculpture consists of 29 elaborate column-like forms residing on three separate terra-cotta bases in addition to elements suspended from the ceiling.

Like the best of Nevelson's work the sculpture alludes to tribal art and utopian or post-apocalyptic architecture.
