Louise Nevelson, touring exhibition, 1979

This is an original poster for a touring exhibition of artist Louise Nevelson's work, which traveled to museums and galleries in Florida, Arizona and Maine from 1979 to 1980.

Nevelson, (born Leah Berliawsky) 19001988, was an American sculptor, b. Kiev, Russia. Using odd pieces of wood, found objects, cast metal and other materials, Nevelson constructed huge walls or enclosed box arrangements of complex and rhythmic abstract shapes. These are covered entirely with black, white, or gold paint. The uniform tone gives her work a mysterious quality and emphasizes the structural importance of its shadows. Examples of Nevelson's work are in the Whitney Museum and Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
