Born in Paris in 1911, Louise Bourgeois is widely regarded as one of the world's leading contemporary artists. From giant spiders to embroidered heads and delicate drawings, the work she has produced in her seven-decade career is as diverse as it is engaging. This book provides an accessible introduction to the artist's unique world, assuming no previous knowledge on the part of the reader, while bringing many fresh insights to those already familiar with her work. Drawing on interviews with Bourgeois, as well as her diaries, drawings, prints, doodles and poems, Ann Coxon bases her interpretations first and foremost on the artist's own words. Works discussed range from her earliest paintings to her most recent bold gouache works on paper, from her large scale 'cells' and monumental sculptures to the smaller sewn and stuffed pieces. Finally, her writings are given serious consideration as part of her artistic output. As Bourgeois approaches her own centenary, still active and making new art, this is a fitting tribute to the achievement of an astonishing artist.
