Product description


"This A to Z glossary chronicles the intimate themes of her art and her many successes." ~Florida InsideOut

"An intriguing companion to the spectacular Louise Bourgeois retrospective...boasting some 240 illustrations, the book covers topics ranging from Anxiety to Fabric Towers to Surrealism..." ~France Magazine

“Constructed as an A-to-Z glossary of Louise Bourgeois’s life, work, philosophies, and insights, this comprehensive publication moves the reader from Maman to Mapplethorpe, primitivism to prostitution, and Sadie to surrealism, in a thought-provoking tapestry of essays, words, and images reflecting the artist’s prolific and engrossing body of work.” ~Choice Magazine
