Louise Bourgeois (Contemporary Artists)by Robert Storr
Synopses & Reviews
American sculptor, painter, and printmaker, born in Paris in 1911, Louis Bourgeois is an exceptional figure and one of the world's most important and sought-after artists. This monograph documents her career, which spans over seventy years touching on the key moments of surrealism, abstract expressionism, and feminism.
Book News Annotation:
Full-page color plates of recent sculpture and installations by this influential contemporary artist (b.1911) are presented together with essays, an interview, and many of Bourgeois' own writings on her art. Critical analysis is found in the lengthy initial essay by Robert Storr (former curator at the Museum of Modern Art in NY, he teaches at the Institute of Fine Arts there) and an essay by critic Allan Schwartzman. Not indexed.
Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
With a career spanning 70 years, Louise Bourgeois now enjoys cult status after a lifetime of little artistic recognition. As a sculptor, she has experimented with alabaster, plaster, latex, bronze and marble, and is equally admired for her intimate drawings and her highly personal writings.
