Runaway Girl: The Artist Louise Bourgeois
An inspiring role model for young teens, especially girls The only book available for young people on one of the most important--and controversial--artists of the 20th century, Runaway Girl provides a distinctive, intimate look at the life and work of sculptor Louise Bourgeois (b. 1911). Known for her graphic, sometimes disturbing, yet always personal artworks, Bourgeois broke down barriers for women in the male-dominated art world as she struggled to make sense of her own troubled past. Family photographs and reproductions of Bourgeois's artwork--from Deconstruction of the Father to Maman--are interspersed with exclusive interviews, selections from the artist's journals, and clear, insightful text. Runaway Girl offers a dynamic, thought-provoking look at the life and work of an artist ahead of her time. Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan have collaborated on best-selling, critically acclaimed books about Chuck Close, Frank O. Gehry, and Vincent van Gogh. Jan Greenberg is also the author of Abrams' Heart to Heart: New Poems Inspired by Twentieth-Century American Art, a Michael L. Printz Honor Book. She lives in St. Louis. Sandra Jordan, an editor and photographer as well as a writer, lives in New York City. Author appearances

Review: Runaway Girl: The Artist Louise Bourgeois (Bccb Blue Ribbon Nonfiction Book Award (Awards))Nutzerbericht - Charlene - Goodreads
A beautiful introduction to a complex artist. Louise died in May 2010. She was 99 years old. This interview was conducted when Louise was 92 and is a fresh look at a life examined though her art. The book is filled with her simplistic but explicit works. Vollständige Rezension lesen
