LOUISE BOURGEOIS "ART POUR LA PAIX" LITHO
Louis Bourgeois (1911-2010) is one of the most important artists of the modern era and has earned her place in the canon for her exceptional contribution to Modern sculpture.
She began her artistic career as a painter and printmaker but turned to sculpture in the late 1940’s.
All the while, she constantly made drawings on paper and practiced printmaking for her own illustrated books and print portfolios. Many of her works on paper, were the venue to prepare and experiment prior to creating an object.
This lovely work of two olive branches nearly enclosed in a circle, speaks to her political and social views, for which she was always outspoken - especially in regard to women, gender roles, sexuality and patriarchy.
Throughout Bourgeois’s career, she exhibited in the most prestigious museums and art galleries. In 1993, she represented the United States at the Venice Biennale.
Following this honour, she was selected by The Tate Modern in 2000 to create a work for the Unilever Series in Turbine Hall. Shortly after the museum installed on its outdoor terrace one of her giant, iconic and imposing "Spider" sculptures.
Since her passing, there has been a renewed interest in her work; New York's Guggenheim Museum, London's Tate Modern and the Centre Pompidou in Paris have all hosted comprehensive exhibitions of her work.
Virtually every gallery of Modern Art has invested in a work by Louise Bourgeois because without one their collection would be incomplete.
To experience more of Louise Bourgeois' work, Caviar20 highly recommends a visit to DIA:Beacon to see a major semi-permanent exhibition of her sculptures and works on paper.
