Signed bottom right, in the red area, of the right strip: Louise Nevelson '67
Nevelson is best known for her monochromatic, painted wood relief sculptures that combine abstract forms with found objects. Here she applied a similar assemblage technique to her graphic works. In each of the sixteen lithographs from her Double Imagery series, printing elements are inverted and reversed to create a rhythmic composition from component parts. After the first printing, the irregularly shaped papers were laid atop the wet lithographs and run through the press a second time, producing a semitransparent, lightly blotted layer in a mirrored response to the original saturated impression. The varying weights and densities of color lend these works visual and spatial complexity.
