I've had a wonderful weekend







I went to the Louise Bourgeois exhibition at the Nordic Watercolour museum and spent a crispy day by the sea. Louise Bourgeois died this year at an age of 98 years old. Here is a little bit more about her and her art - Louise Bourgeois: 10 essential artworks

Louise Bourgeois is fantastic. I wrote my thesis in art history about her work. I didn't know about the exhibition at the Nordic Watercolour Museum. Thank you for posting about it.

Thanks for the nudge Camilla- she's been a note in my diary as I want to find out more about her, I only know bits and pieces. There is an exhibition in London at the moment of her fabric works: http://www.hauserwirth.com/exhibitions/743/louise-bourgeois-the-fabric-works/view/
