Louise Berliawsky Nevelson  was a Ukranian-born American artist born in 1899. Nevelson was one of the most important American sculptors of the twentieth century

Nevelson is known for her abstract expressionist “boxes” grouped together to form a new creation. She used found objects or everyday discarded things in her ‘assemblages’ or assemblies, one of which was three stories high: ”When you put together things that other people have thrown out, you’re really bringing them to life – a spiritual life that surpasses the life for which they were originally created”.
