About the artist
Louise Bourgeois is an American sculptor, painter and printmaker of French birth. She moved to New York in 1938 and during World War II she worked with Joan Miró, André Masson and other European expatriates. Although Bourgeois exhibited with the Abstract Expressionists, she never became an abstract artist. Instead, she created symbolic objects and drawings expressing themes of loneliness and conflict, frustration and vulnerability. Bourgeois’ first sculptures were narrow wooden pieces, such as Sleeping Figure (1950; New York, MOMA), a ‘stick' figure articulated into four parts with two supporting poles. Bourgeois soon began using non-traditional media, with rough works in latex and plaster contrasting with her elegantly worked pieces in wood, bronze and marble. In the 1960s and 1970s her work became more sexually explicit. The Tate Modern had a major retrospective of seventy years of her work in 2007-2008. Maman (1999) a ribbed bronze sculpture which resembles a spider, sold for $10.7 million in 2011, making this the highest price paid for a work by a woman artist.
