RIP: Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois by Robert Mapplethorpe

I don't want this blog to become a list of obituaries but two important people died this week and I feel compelled to acknowledge them both. I'll never forget my first museum encounter with Louise Bourgeois's artwork in 1995 at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris. There have been many since and the only one that was as profound as the Paris retrospective was seeing this installation at Dia Beacon. Thank you Louise for making art until the very end - in that regard you and Agnes Martin are truly inspirations. Update: Rebecca has a great post about the artist over at Design Ingenuity.
