Louise Bourgeois, Femme Maison, 1947, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York

I have forever loved this ink and pencil drawing by the great Louise Bourgeois. It speaks to me, very loudly, almost daily. I’m quite sure that the meaning and significance I place upon it is not at all what Bourgeois herself was thinking about when she created it. Isn’t one of the greatest gifts of art the power of interpretation?
