The Art World Got A Little Less Interesting Yesterday

Louise Bourgeois passed away yesterday at the age of 98. A completely fascinating woman who really only started to receive the recognition she deserved when she was in her 70’s. As an artist she was incredibly gifted in her ability to draw on autobiographical experiences and relate them without cloying self referentialism. The works were rich, sensual, sexual, and often terrifying. Giant spiders, tables of breasts, hacked up and mutated penises, I mean what’s not to like?

We’re going to miss her a whole lot.

  1. I’d recognize that penis anywhere! I’ve seen it at MoMA!

  2. I was saddened by her passing too.
