New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1976. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's photo-illustrated stiff paper wraps.
"I don’t think of myself as a strong woman. I never even heard that word about me until recently. I always thought that bluntly I was a glamorous goddamn exciting woman. I didn’t want to be strong at anything. I wanted to have a ball on earth. But I wanted it through the channels that I want." Signed first edition of leading 20th-century sculptor Louise Nevelson's multimedia memoir. Composed of extended conversations with Nevelson's longtime assistant American photographer Diana MacKown transcribed from interview tapes, the autobiography delivers an immediately intimate portrait of the artist. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photos and reproductions of Nevelson, her work, her family, and her studio. Signed by Nevelson on the half-title. Published simultaneously in hardcover. Light edgewear to wraps. Near fine. Item #2318
