Autobiographical Series and 11 Drypoints


Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) is widely renowned and considered one of the most influential artists of modern and contemporary art. Bourgeois' work, whether sculpture, drawing or printmaking, has always maintained an autobiographical theme and expresses some of her own vulnerabilities – loneliness, insecurity, anger, sadness, desire.

Autobiographical Series (1994) captures some of her deepest thoughts and memories whilst 11 Drypoints (1999) brings these anxieties into more abstract territory. Featuring her most recognised motifs from the pregnant woman to the cat, the prints in these two series are clearly inspired by her fascination with the human condition.
