Louise Berliawsky Nevelson (born Leah Berliawsky, September 23 1899, Kiev, Czarist Russia - d. April 17 1988, New York, New York) was a Ukrainian-born American artist.

Nevelson is known for her abstract expressionist “boxes” grouped together to form a new creation. She used found objects or everyday discarded things in her “assemblages” or assemblies, one of which was three stories high: ”When you put together things that other people have thrown out, you’re really bringing them to life – a spiritual life that surpasses the life for which they were originally created."
