Harold Cousins in New York, NY

I really enjoyed Harold Cousins: Forms of Empty Space, at the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, my never miss Chelsea gallery. They always have good shows, and enjoy talking about their artists.

Harold Cousins working in his studio in Paris, France, c. 1952

“Comprising thirty metal sculptures executed between 1951 and 1975 as well as a group of related works on paper, the presentation is the gallery’s first exhibition dedicated to Harold Cousins (1916–1992) since taking on representation of the artist’s estate in 2020. Beginning with his first mature metal sculptures, Harold Cousins: Forms of Empty Space charts the formation and evolution of Cousins’ major sculpture series, including his forests, drawings in space, Gothic cathedrals, and plaiton works.” (Michael Rosenfeld Gallery)
