Nevelson, Louise. FAR AWAY LANDSCAPE. Not in Baro. Etching, circa 1952-54.

Titled and signed in pencil. 15 1/8 x 16 3/8 inches, plus full margins. In very good condition. Rare.
Provenance: Albert Argentieri, New Jersey, friend of the artist; thence by descent, private collection, New Jersey. During the 1950s and 1960s, Argentieri, a photographer and artist, lived near Louise Nevelson and her assistant, Ted Haseltine, who was aclose friend of Argentieri. He photographed Nevelson and her work, along with Haseltine, collected the wooden pieces from abandoned buildings and other locations which Nevelson used to create her sculptural assemblages.
