    About The Work

    This work is an excellent example of Bourgeois's printing practice at the end of her life. In her series "Anatomy," Bourgeois isolated features of the human body and examined them at close range. The eyes in our print, which come in different shapes and sizes, warily watch the viewer, observing the world with the same caution and precision as their creator.

    Printmaking was an important part of Bourgeois' practice beginning in the 1940s, when she worked at William Stanley Hayter's intaglio workshop, Atelier 1. From 1994-95, the Museum of Modern Art in New York mounted an exhibition entitled The Prints of Louise Bourgeois, for which they published a comprehensive catalog. This work was made soon after the show closed.
