Nevelson was the grand dame of 20th-century sculpture. She died in 1988, and in 2000 her work was honored in a series of five 33-cent postage stamps. As a sculptor, she's best known for her intricate assemblages of wood — like shallow boxes stacked with cut-out shapes. They were often painted black and meant to be displayed on a wall or viewed predominantly from one side. Although this "Sky Landscape" of painted aluminum is fully three-dimensional, it still wants a simple backdrop to silhouette its form.
