Louise Bourgeois


One of the outcomes of our delayed flight to San Francisco, which lost us half a day, was that we didn't have time to get to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, which was somewhere I particularly wanted to see. In particular, I was keen to see Louise Bourgeois's Nest (right), having seen her similar installation at Tate Modern a few years ago. It wasn't to be.

And this now seems all the more poignant, since Louise Bourgeois died while we were in San Francisco. She was 92, and a remarkably feisty woman.

As it turns out, I wouldn't have seen it in any case, since according to the SFMOMA website, Nest isn't currently on display anyway.

I'd like to think they will now rectify this, as a tribute to a remarkable artist.
