Collecting two intimate and personal print series created late in her career, Louise Bourgeois: Autobiographical Prints opens a window into the mind of this celebrated artist. The Autobiographical Series (1994) captures her deepest thoughts and memories, while her set of 11 Drypoints (1999) offers a more abstract perspective, using metaphorical motifs to conjure the dreams and images that haunted her to the very end of her life. Roger Malbert provides an overview of the role that printmaking played in the artist's long career, while psychoanalyst and feminist Juliet Mitchell explores themes of childhood, trauma and sexuality.
