Two Drawings, Ink on Paper
19445-47, 91.3em x 35.6cm and 23.2c, x 9.2cm
drawings show the skill and imagination of the artist in the
1940s, long before Bourgeois received acclaim for her work. Bourgeois
was not celebrated as an important artist until she was in her
70s and had an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New
York. The subject matter here seems to be the woman's identity
and tie to her domestic role in the home. The woman's body is
not idealized, but is a structure with sexual parts that blends
into the box-like house.
