Louise Bourgeois. 1911 - 2010

Louise Bourgeois passed away on Monday 31th of May 2010. She lived in Manhattan, New York. Her works of art are the disturbing kind, the kind that doesn't leave you, the kind that haunts you. She was an icon in the feminist movement but she was first an artist who explored new frontiers on expressing emotions, fears and scars. She was known for her installations and sculptures with very evocative sexual emblems.
