Marie-Laure Bernadac, formerly Curator at the Musée Picasso, Paris, is Chief Curator of Graphic Arts at the Musée National d'art Moderne (Centre Georges Pompidou).
Louise Bourgeois, born in Paris in 1991, has spent the majority of her creative life in the United States. She occupies a unique place in the history of modern sculpture as a quasi-mythic point of reference for an entire generation of contemporary artists. Though linked stylistically to both Brancusi and Gicometti, Bourgeois' oeuvre defies classification, oscillating continually between abstract geometry and organic reality. Using a wide range of materials, from wood and plaster to marble and latex, Bourgeois explores universal themes (the body, whole or in parts, childhood, maternity, and sexuality) from a deeply personal perspective, imbuing the inert matter with extraordinary emotional intensity. Today, interest in Bourgeois' work is greater than ever, as evidenced by numerous successful traveling exhibitions and retrospective. s Louise Bourgeois is a comprehensive and richly illustrated monograph, chronological in approach, bringing together her works from early sketches and paintings to the most recent sculptures and installations with which she has astonished the art world. Marie-Laure Bernadac weaves her insightful text with Bourgeois' own words from articles, films, and interview to provide a unique and highly accessible study of this fascinating and complex artist. Louise Bourgeois is a highly recommended addition to community and academic artbook collections. -- Midwest Book Review
