RIP: Louise Bourgeois

You've likely already heard, but it's worth taking note that artist Louise Bourgeois died yesterday at age 98 of heart failure.  Born in France, Bourgeois moved to America in 1938 where she studied painting and pursued a career in art.  Known best for her abstracted sculpture work (including the spider casts Maman) , Bourgeois was a polarizing figure in the art world whose work could be as aggressive as it was organic, as grotesque as it was beautiful.  [source]
