Louise Bourgeois Art

Louise Bourgeois (25 December 1911 – 31 May 2010)

Two things:

  • She studied mathematics initially

    I got peace of mind, only through the study of rules nobody could change.
  • What sin can create as a drama in a child's mind!

Her father's betrayal with her nanny and teacher affected her for the rest of her life.

You can read more about her life with the wiki's page on her. Or perhaps why not just starting with a last image of her?

Louise Borgeois was french and of French culture, but lived in the USA for most of his life.

Her "Mamans", spiders sculptures allude to her mother's strength and endurance at her husband infidelity. A biographical theme which permeated all of her work reportedly.
