Catalogue Note

"The very best of Nevelson's individual assemblages, or structures, or sculptures (or drawings, as she has referred to them) are, variously, exquisite, powerful, remote, primordial, and always intellectually stimulating. They do things to the mind akin to what a Bach two- or three-part invention does. But it is when these singularities are combined, joined in company to many others - assemblage of assemblage - that they accumulate an emotional intensity that is the essence of Nevelson's specialness." - Edward Albee (Louise Nevelson: Atmosphere and Environments, New York, 1980, pp. 28-29)
