Meet Louise Bourgeois One of the key artists of the 20th century, Louise Bourgeois was born in Paris in 1911 and emigrated to New York in 1938, living there until the age of 99. Using the body and its parts as a primary form, including the spider as metaphor for the mother, Bourgeois explored the full range of the human condition, often drawing upon memories and sexuality that gave her work an edge that many found challenging. Her personal obsessions found form ranging from lyrical drawings to enormous installations and achieved a profound universal voice.
