The French/American artist Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) is one of the great figures of modern and contemporary art. During a career spanning seventy years, Bourgeois produced an astonishing array of sculptures, installations, paintings, drawings and prints that express a highly individual imagination. Bourgeois constantly challenged conventional means of creating works of art, and through her unique visual language she examined the complexity of life and emotions.
