One of the most significant events signaling the Farnsworth’s commitment to contemporary art was the 1980 bequest of Nathan Berliawsky, who bequeathed 20 works by his sister, famed American sculptor Louise Nevelson, who spent her youth in Rockland. Gifts of another 55 works by the artist herself in 1981-85, and pieces from other family members and donors, as well as the museum’s 1979 purchase of her 1959 white sculpture Dawn Column I have given the Farnsworth the second largest public collection of Nevelson’s work in the world.
