Description Louise Bourgeois, The Secret of the Cells is both a catalogue of works and a biography of the famous Parisian-born artist. Born in 1911, the now octagenarian Bourgeois has shown widely throughout the world and to great critical acclaim especially within the 1990s. Bourgeois's personal history is vastly important in the content of her work. This book takes readers on a journey from her affluent childhood in France, including family photographs, to her schooling under painter Fernand Leger, to her eventual marriage and move to the United States where she continued her long and varied career working primarily as a sculptor and installation artist.
