Louise Nevelson, the Russian- born sculptor whose eclectic works took decades to gain critical acceptance, died in April at the age of 89 in her New York home.

Her major commissions included a 55-foot wall for Temple Beth-El in Great Neck, New York. Work on Jewish themes included “Six Million Plus One,” a painted wooden memorial to the Jews killed in the Holocaust, which she donated to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem in 1965.
