6. Louise Nevelson (1899-1988), Maquette for Transparent Horizon, 1972-1973

Already present in the park, Calder’s sculpture provides a good example of the “Stabiles” which the artist, famous for his “mobiles,” produced over decades. The addition of a sculpture of the same period by Louise Nevelson, provides a counterpoint to the classic modernism of the American artist. Both works refer to the transformation by an artistic language of naturalist representations, be it a “sun over a mountain” or a “transparent horizon.”
