Born in Paris, Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) was an extraordinarily influential sculptor, admired equally for her intimate drawings and her highly personal writings. Her career spanned some 70 years and touched upon such key movements as Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, and Feminism. Themes such as the Other, the feminine and the masculine, and the body – as well as her own specific biography – spin in the tangled and intense life-long body of her work. This publication offers a rare glimpse into the mind of this notoriously reclusive artist.
