Louise Nevelson™ was born Leah Berliawsky in 1899 in Ukraine.  She immigrated to Rockland, Maine with her family at the age of five.  She lived there until 1920 when she married Charles Nevelson, a cargo-ship owner from New York City.  Her move to New York following their marriage was instrumental in her development as an artist.  Studying and working with many noted artists and teachers of her day, including Hans Hofmann in Munich in 1931 and Diego Rivera (1933) and Chaim Gross (1934) in New York, she emerged to become one of the most remarkable and individualistic artists of the 20th Century.  Her installations and assemblages of stacked boxes filled with found wooden objects redefined modern American sculpture.


Passionate about life and art, Louise Nevelson™ was a true pioneer and independent spirit.
