Louise Bourgeois made sculptures in wood, steel, stone and cast rubber and used drawing and printing as a tool of artistic expression, often organic in form and sexually explicit, emotionally aggressive yet witty, covered many stylistic bases. But from first to last they shared a set of repeated themes centered on the human body and its need for nurture and protection in a frightening world; protection often translated into images of shelter or home.
