"Louise Nevelson's Facade: An Homage to Edith Sitwell"
1999-12-23 until 2000-02-13
Everson Art Museum
Syracuse, NY, USA United States of America

Louise Nevelson (1900-1988) has been well-known since the mid-1950s for her massive, painted wooden wall constructions. Inspired by the Surrealists, pre-Columbian sculpture, and urban architecture, Nevelson’s sculpture typically employs boxed compartments that are filled with found-wood relief groupings, painted black. After 1963, Nevelson also became extremely prolific in print media.

Her Façade suite of 1967 is comprised of twelve prints that involve photography, silkscreen, and collage on paper and acetate sheets. The series was created in homage to Dame Edith Sitwell, the celebrated British poet who died in 1964. Inspired by, but not illustrative of, Nevelson’s favorite Sitwell poems, the works are based on her own wood constructions.
