Catalogue Note

"During the winter of 1982-83, her tall, slender Cascades Perpendiculars on display at Pace made use of the fire-damaged remnants of an organ from the old church of St. Mark's-in-the-Bowery, which had burned down. Arnold Glimcher and others considered this her best work in a decade; the all-black, human-size personages suggested an outpouring of ecstatic energy and coiled strength as well as tender delicacy." - Laurie Lisle (Laurie Lisle, Louise Nevelson, New York, 1990, p. 273)
