Synopsis

Runaway Girl The Artist Louise Bourgeois by Jan Greenberg, Sandra Jordan

This title about one of the most important and controversial artists of the 20th century is aimed at young teenagers. Runaway Girl provides an intimate look at the life and work of sculptor Louise Bourgeois (born 1911). Known for her graphic, sometimes disturbing, yet always personal artworks, Bourgeois broke down barriers for women in the male-dominated art world as she struggled to make sense of her own troubled past. Family photographs and reproductions of Bourgeois's work - from Deconstruction of Father to Maman - are interspersed with exclusive interviews, selections from the artist's journals and clear text.

Reviews

I was in effect a runaway girl....All my work in the past 50 years, all my subjects, have found their inspiration in my childhood.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
