Statement

Born in Paris on December 25, 1911, Louise Bourgeois is a seminal figure in 20th Century art.  She has influenced many generations of artists and her exhibition career has spanned 60 years of art making.  Bourgeois's work has been described as body-art, monumental, contra-monumental, post-minimalist, radical, feminist, gender and sexually-oriented, deeply psychological, organic, anthropomorphic, abstract, and on and on.  She has been shown in the world's dominant museums, galleries and art institutions, and continues to exhibit widely.  Her work is in the collections of most major museums.  Bourgeois lives and works in New York.
