Book Synopsis



A rare glimpse inside the private world of Louise Bourgeois, one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century.

Readers who already love the artist will be thrilled by the richness of this book, and those who didn't know her work before will discover a complex, brilliant, and deeply emotional artist who used her creative gifts to reshape the world around her. - Architectural Digest

Bound in soft sky-blue linen cloth and full of suggestive photography, the pleasure begins when the book is first held, its heft and weight, the mix of textures and fonts suggest something to be savored, then saved. - New York Journal of Books

Louise Bourgeois was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century and photographer Jean-Fran├žois Jaussaud met her for the first time in 1994 at her studio in Brooklyn. But it was not before she had interrogated him about every aspect of his life that he earned her trust. A rare photo session was set up in Spring 1995, under one condition: she would destroy the photographs if she didn't like them... Jaussaud agreed to it and passed the test.

He was then given carte blanche to photograph her studio and her house in Chelsea, and he kept coming back for another eleven years. Jaussaud's photographs of Louise Bourgeois in her house and studio are a moving testimony showing how completely implicated in her work she was, to the point that her private life and her work were inextricably interwoven.

Louise Bourgeois: An Intimate Portrait also contains:
-Extracts from Bourgeois' diary
- Personal notes
- Short texts from Jaussaud, Marie-Laure Bernadac, and Xavier Girard.

This is a must-have addition to any serious admirer of Louise Bourgeois as well as a fascinating entry point for those just discovering her groundbreaking explorations of the family, sexuality, bodies, death, and the unconscious.
