Louise Bourgeois dies at 98; revered artist’s work was a ‘form of psychoanalysis’ – latimes.com.

By Suzanne Muchnic

“Louise Bourgeois, an internationally revered artist whose intensely personal work was inspired by psychological conflict, feminist consciousness and a fertile imagination, has died. She was 98.”

Saw this on Gawker, a sad day indeed.  However, at least she lived a long life.  Regarding her work, like other female minimalists, I always thought it was a parody of the minimalist art done by men.  Whereas the men created work that looked hard and imposing, the women made work that looked soft and yielding.
