The MoMA has launched a website featuring a trove of donated works by Louise Bourgeois. We are so enthused that we added a permanent link in our catalog to the new website. Check it out today, and then watch it grow by checking back in annually. From the site:
This website will eventually contain some 3,500 images documenting the complete prints and illustrated books of Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010), most of which are in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Designed to highlight the artist’s creative process, the site emphasizes evolving print compositions and comparative relationships between prints, drawings, and sculptures. Documentation will be added incrementally, by theme, once a year.
