Condition

This work is in very good and sound condition overall. Under close inspection, there is very minor evidence of handling and wear to the edges, including scattered pinpoint areas of pigment loss visible throughout the sculpture as to be expected from a work of from this time period as well as minor inconsistencies including some minute losses to the wood throughout, which are inherent to the artist's chosen medium. As is to be expected for a work of this construction, a thin layer of dust has adhered to the work.

"When I fell in love with black, it contained all color. It wasn’t a negation of color. It was an acceptance. Because black encompasses all colors. Black is the most aristocratic color of all [...] You can be quiet and it contains the whole thing. There is no color that will give you the feeling of totality. Of peace. Of greatness. Of quietness. Of excitement. I have seen things that were transformed into black, that took on just greatness. I don’t know a lesser word [...].” Louise Nevelson
