Louise Bourgeois Art

American, French, 1911-2010

Louise Joséphine Bourgeois was a French-American artist. Although she is best known for her large-scale sculpture and installation art, Bourgeois was also a prolific painter and printmaker. She explored a variety of themes throughout her long career, including domesticity and the family, sexuality and the body, as well as death and the unconscious. These themes connect to events from her childhood, which she considered to be a therapeutic process. Although Bourgeois exhibited with the Abstract Expressionists and her work has much in common with Surrealism and Feminist art, she was not formally affiliated with a particular artistic movement.

By Louise Bourgeois
Located in London, GB
Dismemberment, 1994 Louise Bourgeois Drypoint and roulette, on smooth Somerset wove paper Signed and numbered from the edition of 44 Fourth and final state Printed by Harlan & Weaver, New York Published by Peter Blum Edition, New York Plate: 17.6 × 12.6 cm (6.9 × 4.9 in) Sheet: 52 × 37.7 cm (20.5 × 14.8 in) Literature: MoMA Cat. No. 652/IV "This is a self-portrait as a helpless, defenceless woman. She has no arms... she is like the harmless women in sculpture. The protecting hand has been cut off. Maybe women are just poor creatures... there is always the fear of being inadequate... of not being able to take care of oneself. It is a permanent feeling. There is the need to defend oneself... then she would be afraid for the children. I always felt that I could not defend myself because I could not understand what motivates people... I still feel that way." In reference to the game of marbles (being played by the hand at bottom right, most easily seen in state IV), Bourgeois said: "There is always someone to trick her... someone always wins. This is the desperate art of self-defense.... But even if someone cut her, she would not lose her dignity... she would still stand there in full self-assurance. She tries to put herself back together through her beauty... through her hair. You can land on your feet if you are beautiful...
