Louise_NevelsonLouise Nevelson was known for her monumental box-shaped sculpture, and her signature use of monochrome.

In her formative years she studied with Hans Hofmann, and worked as an assistant to Diego Rivera. In the mid-thirties she began to gather wooden objects on the streets of New York, transforming them into elegant objects of mystery.
