Janus Fleuri by Louise Bourgeois

I often post images of Louise Bourgeois’ paintings and drawings, but here’s one of her incredible sculptures! It’s a bronze piece made in 1968.

Doodle Tuesday – Louise Bourgeois

20140221-065605

This week’s doodle comes from Feminist Surrealist (not officially either) Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010). Probably most well-known for her cells (below) and giant spiders, Bourgeois’ sketches always hit me the hardest.

I think I’m ready to say that she’s my favourite artist now. Or at least that she ties with John Cage. Yes, I don’t think they’d mind sharing. They’re both so inspirational.

Born Louise Josephine Bourgeois
25 December 1911
Paris, France
Died 31 May 2010 (aged 98)

Her mother’s death inspired her to abandon mathematics and to begin studying art. Her father thought modern artists were wastrels and refused to support her. Good old Wikipedia
