Particular Passions

Particular Passions: Talks with Women who Shaped our Times

The oral biography of Louise Nevelson, whose work and vision elevated sculpture to its current place of prominence in the arts.

“I don’t want to have a lot. I’ve had all kinds of jewelry... before I was twenty... I’ve tasted of almost everything on earth. It has not changed my life because it all came at a certain time when I was ready.

When I did the series of etchings called Essences, I was already in my late seventies. I went to the studio for two weeks. I stayed probably a year. If someone had come and given me the world, I wouldn’t have taken it. It was so exciting to me.

Looking back... I knew what I wanted and I felt that I had the tools to fulfill it. The work I do I’ve done basically for me. Why? Because I wanted to give meaning to my life. It’s the very best way I know how to live my life. How else could I live it?”
