Overview

Runaway Girl: The Artist Louise Bourgeois by Jan Greenberg, Sandra Jordan, Sandra Jordan

Louise Bourgeois (1911-) is one of the most important -- and controversial -- artists of the twentieth century. Known for her graphic, highly personal, and sometimes disturbing sculpture, Bourgeois broke down barriers in the male-dominated art world as she struggled to make sense of her troubled past. Through select interviews with the artist and the cooperation of her studio, authors Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan provide a distinctive, intimate look at the life and work of this incredible woman. Filled with family photographs and reproductions of her artworks, Runaway Girl traces Bourgeois's childhood in Paris to her relationship with her family to art school to her marriage and her running away to New York City. The past haunts Bourgeois, shaping her powerful body of work. The artist's willingness to discuss her experiences, the very root of her art, with humor and honesty adds to this fascinating look at a famously challenging woman.
