Neith Nevelson - United States
Art Brokerage: Neith Nevelson American Artist: b. 1946. Known for her vivid color schemes, slight variations of three main subject matters (horses, nude women's bodies and male faces), and for her 'unschooled' techniques, Neith (McCrea) Nevelson (New York City b. 1946-) never thought she would become a professional artist, not even growing up in the household of her grandmother, Louise Nevelson (1899-1988), one of the world's premier 20th Century sculptors. Neith, one of three siblings, is the eldest daughter of Mike Nevelson, Louise Nevelson's only son. Her other sisters from different marriages are Elsbeth and Maria Nevelson; the latter went on to found the Louise Nevelson Foundation. Neith's longest stint at a 'formal' education was at the Accademia di Belle Arti, in Florence, Italy, though she was expelled from the academy after a few months for her persistence in painting what she eventually became known for-- faces, women and horses-- and not what was required of the curriculum, mostly still life drawings and landscapes.nAway from scholarly surroundings, Neith would go on her own way and use a wide array of stylistic forms and categories to paint-- mostly Cubism, Expressionism, and Surrealism. In Miami, a now-defunct restaurant called "Soco" was designed mainly with Neith's paintings and motifs, Soco Restaurant. An ever-growing trend among fans are so-called blogs and web-sites of which Neith's name has become a popular name. Listings wanted.
