According to the story, sculptor Louise Nevelson marched into the prestigious Nierendorf Gallery one day in 1941 to demand an exhibition from the gallery director. Karl Nierendorf agreed to represent her, she had her first solo show in his gallery on Sep. 22, 1941. He would be her benefactor for years to come. After his death, his estate was bought by the Guggenheim, and the gallery no longer exists.
