Louise's Journey

Louise Bourgeois once said of her emotional life, “I have been to hell and back and let me tell you, it was wonderful.” The paintings in this section attempt to elucidate her journey using the  drawings, paintings, and sculptures she produced over her long career: her breakdown, her emergence from Freudian analysis, her concerns with “motherhood,” and her metaphorical efforts to restore strained relationships.
