Inward orientation, psychoanalysis and the subconcious are prominent in Louise Bourgeois' works.
In her small drawings, a selection from 1946 to 1998, shown in 2004 in the group exhibtion ""Silent Screams Difficult Dreams”, she comes to terms with traumatic childhood experiences and existential anxieties.
Louise Bourgeois was born in France in 1911 and worked in America since 1938. She studied art at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, and for a time studied with Fernand Léger. Through 2008 and 2009, Bourgeois’ Tate Modern exhibition tours to the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Guggenheim Museum, New York, LAMoCA, Los Angeles and the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C. Major solo exhibitions include MOMA, New York (1994), the inaugural Unilever commission at Tate Modern, London (2000), the Guggenheim Bilbao (2001), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2002), Dia Center for the Arts, New York (2003), and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2003).
