A landmark publication in the study of her oeuvre, Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait offers an in-depth survey of Bourgeois’ prints and books. This book celebrates Bourgeois’ creative process through more than 250 illustrated works, demonstrating the evolution of her compositions over her dynamic career. At the same time, Bourgeois’ prints and books are discussed in relation to her sculptures and paintings in an effort to show how they played an important role in her creative process.
Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait is published as the companion to an exhibition of the same title at New York's Museum of Modern Art. The impact of the volume, though, goes far beyond the traditional catalogue of an exhibition. A lavishly illustrated installment that is underpinned by a timeline of Bourgeois’ career, the pages of this text reveal the essential roles of collaboration and experimentation throughout Bourgeois’ career. These aspects were as central to Bourgeois’ artistic practice as life itself, making the volume a must-read for fans of the modernist’s work. Get your copy at Musebooks today.
