Louise Nevelson

It was on this day September 23 in the year 1899 that acclaimed sculptor Louise Nevelson was born.

Louise Nevelson is known as of the most important American sculptors of the twentieth century. An artist friend who was in NYC in the 60's has told me fascinating stories about seeing this wild eyed woman digging through dumpster on the street in the village. One day he asked an acquaintance about her. He was informed that it was Louise Nevleson looking for fodder for her work.

I think that that would be a very cool memory to have indeed.
