This is such a fascinating piece; I love how it changes depending on where you are standing. This large, textured, black wooden sculpture is characteristic of Nevelson's work, especially in the 1950s.
Nevelson is considered a pioneer as a woman artist, as a feminist artist, and as an abstract sculptor.
In the mid-20th century, prominent abstract sculptors like Isamu Noguchi and Alexander Calder were working primarily in stone and metal. In contrast, Nevelson favored found materials, especially wood.
