Catalogue Note

"In some ways, Louise Nevelson's newest and most astonishing achievements—her vast wooden walls—recall the iconoclastic innovations of the new American painting...In scale alone, the architectural magnitude of these forests of black boxes parallels the awesomely large paint expanses of Rothko, Still, or Newman, which similarly impose upon the spectator an engulfing sensuous environment."
Anita Berliawsky Weinstein in Laurie Wilson, Louise Nevelson: Light and Shadow, London 2016, pp. 188-189
