Louise Bourgeois
Louise Bourgeois (1911- 2010) was a a French-American artist best known for her massive sculptures and art installations. Even though she wasn't formally linked with any particular art movement, she often exhibited with Abstract Expressionist artists and had many overlapping themes with Surrealism and Feminist art.

A lot of her content was thought to be linked to her childhood, where she coaxed out themes of family, sexuality, domesticity, and death. Her father was a known philanderer but her mother continued to stay with him, and this upbringing greatly affected Bourgeois. Her art is thought to be therapeutic.
