More information

Louise Nevelson achieved recognition for her wooden assemblages: stacked boxes containing myriad forms. Each of her works is painted a single colour, often black. ‘Rain Forest Wall’ consists of 67 components. The volumes are emphasises by the mirrors placed against the back of the larger boxes. Nevelson was already an established artist when this work was acquired. It was exhibited in 1969 at a Nevelson’s retrospective at the Kröller-Müller Museum.
