Although known predominately as a sculptor, Bourgeois also created an important body of prints. This aspect of her work was concentrated towards the early and late phases of her career. After a long hiatus she returned to printmaking in the 1980s as her work was generating increasing international acclaim. One of her key themes was the exploration of bodily experience, often with feminist and surrealistic undertones. This print was published as part of the ‘Anatomy Portfolio’, a series of eleven etchings and one multiple. A complete set is held in the Museum of Modern Art, New York.


The Artist

Louise Bourgeois

Confessional art reveals the inner landscape and processes through painting, sculpture and other forms. Louise Bourgeois is widely recognised as the progenitor of confessional art. It is almost impossible to truly interpret her work without reference to her biography. She offered a very literal symbolism that lent itself to explanations that were closer to psychoanalyses than art theory. This has led some people to wonder what the significance of her work will be when she has passed away and is no longer able to tie it into her personal history. She passed away in 2011 so now it is up to history to decide.
