Opening on International Women’s Day, Sotheby’s is honored to present a first of its kind capsule sale dedicated to the singular contributions of women sculptors to the postwar and contemporary periods. Anchored by an exceptionally rare, white multi-part Louise Nevelson installation, the sale also features highlights by Louise Bourgeois, Ruth Asawa, Lynda Benglis and Tracy Emin among others. 

“I’m always fascinated by these forms; they mean something. I call it, for clarification, the fourth dimension. I don’t need so much material and matter to tune in and identify and recognize that fourth dimension.”

– Louise Nevelson
