Product Details


“The book is a major achievement, not just of scholarship, but also as a record of the intersection of two sensibilities, artist and writer, and of personhood as the lens through which all art must inevitably be viewed. It also supports my belief that it takes a very long time to really know anything about an artist, to internalize her ideas and sensibility.”
New York Review of Books

“More than a thousand illustrations and writings from Bourgeois’s close personal friend, art critic Robert Storr, illuminate the late work and life of the artist.”
Publishers Weekly

“Intimate Geometries is dedicated to the great artist Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) who died a few years ago at the age of 98. In my opinion, Bourgeois would be a great choice to win the Nobel Prize in Art.”  
Edward Goldman, KCRW San Francisco

“Storr — a former curator at the Museum of Modern Art and among the best art writers alive — devotes an exhaustive essay in support of Bourgeois’ equally expansive intellect and intuition. What makes it even more important is that the artist was one of the great pioneers in the field among women in the 20th century, and remains a vital feminist icon even since her death, at 98, in 2010.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“A grande dame of modernist art, Bourgeois contributed to movements from Surrealism to Post-Minimalism, though her brooding and sexually explicit sculptures defy easy categorization. Art critic Robert Storr, a close friend of the artist, brings extensive critical analysis to bear in this heavily illustrated biography.”
