RIP Mme Bourgeois

True to its name, this Memorial weekend saw two personal icons pass away. After Dennis Hopper, sculptress Louise Bourgeois left us today at 98. The NYT remembers her, while the Guardian discusses her 10 essential artworks. Also: Sex, Art & Lots of Art on KCRW. Une très grande dame, whose life experience, and translation into her works, affected one's art experience from a very tender age.
