Louise was renowned for her works featuring animals, and her adoration for them was evident throughout her career.

Internationally renowned artist Louise Bourgeois was born in Paris in 1911. Although she lived in New York from 1938 and until her death in 2010, much of her inspiration was derived from her early childhood in France. Using the body as a primary form, Bourgeois explored the full range of the human condition. From poetic drawings to room-size installations, she was able to give her fears a physical form in order to exorcise them. Memories, sexuality, love, and abandonment are the core of her complex body of work.
