Flammarion Contemporary, $75

The work of acclaimed artist Louise Bourgeois, still active and working at the age of 95, is presented in this long-awaited monograph on the doyenne of contemporary art. Bourgeois has produced a body of work that spans more than five decades, including over twenty worldwide exhibitions in 2005 alone. Famous for her highly experimental and autobiographical sculptures, Bourgeois’ work also includes intimate drawings, paintings, and personal writings. This comprehensive volume presents Bourgeois’ extensive career through a retrospective text, the artist’s own writings, and over 150 images that represent her output from her earliest work to her most recent projects.

Flammarion Contemporary is a new series of object-books that provide the general public with an informative and visually evocative reference on the work of contemporary artists and the issues and trends that drive the art world today.
