Louise Bourgeois, _The Nest_, 1994. Sculpture | steel. 101 in. x 189 in. x 158 in.

Louise Bourgeois, _Persistent Antagonism_, 1947-1949. Sculpture | painted wood with metal ring. 68 1/2 in. x 9 1/4 in. x 12 in.

From the SFMOMA multimedia vaults: the legendary, much beloved, much admired artist on becoming a sculptor. On geometric forms. On gender roles. As it happens, SFMOMA will be showing Brigitte Cornand’s Louise Bourgeois Trilogy on three consecutive Thursdays in August, something to look forward to. Rest in peace.
