Born: Sept 23, 1899
Louise Nevelson

“But when I fell in love with black, it contained all color.
It wasn’t a negation of color. It was an acceptance.

Because black encompasses all colors. Black is the most aristocratic color of all. ….You can be quiet and it contains the whole thing. There is no color that will give you the feeling of totality. Of peace. Of greatness. Of quietness. Of excitement. I have seen things that were transformed into black, that took on just greatness. I don’t know a lesser word.”

Early Nevelson show in Los Angeles,
at Margo Leavin Gallery...
