This past Monday the world said goodbye to a woman that has played a massive role in the world of contemporary art, Louise Bourgeois. She has created masterpieces that have shocked and inspired audiences for over seven decades. In a world where artists are written about and forgotten in a day’s time…that is quite a lifespan!
I had the great pleasure of meeting Louise several times over the years. Simply being in the same room as Louise is being in the presence of greatness. Her soul and personality filled a space like no one that I had ever had the pleasure of meeting before. We lost a wonderful woman on Monday. However, she lived a wonderfully long and full life on this earth and left behind a portfolio of work that will keep her name alive for as long as art survives.
