The authorised biography of Louise Nevelson, one of the great American sculptors of the 20th century. Nevelson was born in Tsarist Russia and emigrated with her family to the United States. After escaping a repressive marriage to a New York millionaire she found her artistic role late in life. She spent the final four decades of her life creating her extraordinary sculpture and living the life of a New York creative. Wilson draws on interviews with Nevelson herself, as well as with her family and artistic circle. The text is accompanied by nearly one hundred images, many taken from the artist's personal archive.
