Louise Bourgeois

From France | Sculptor


Working from the 1930s until the end of the 20th century, sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010) had a lengthy and diverse career, particularly notable for her abstract and symbolic depictions of the human body’s vulnerability. Though Bourgeois was overlooked for much of her early career, a 1982 retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art brought her critical and popular acclaim as a pioneer of daring, feminist art. She was presented with a National Medal of Arts by President Clinton, in 1997, and won a lifetime achievement award from the International Sculpture Center in Washington.
