The VRC has just added over 45 images of pieces by the prolific French-American artist, Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010), who produced drawings, etchings, installations, works made of fabric and sculptures out of a variety of materials.

The volume from which these reproductions were taken, entitled "Louise Bourgeois: I Have Been to Hell and Back" (Publisher: Hatje Cantz, 2015), is grouped into themes that characterize her oeuvre, including memory, trauma, fear, sexuality and relationships along with the difficulty of simultaneously being a mother and an artist.
