Lot description
Published by Carolina Nitsch in conjunction with a benefit series for the New Museum (New York), each work in this edition of 15 is a unique variation hand-painted with gouache, watercolor and pencil. Bourgeois used a single plate etched on both sides to produce four impressions on each print—two depicting the upper female body and two of the lower body. The fabric collage elements are sewn together, and are adhered to the paper with cross stitches visible at the four outer corners.

Louise Bourgeois (French/American 1911-2010) is regarded as one of the most successful female artists of the 20th Century. Bourgeois created symbolic objects expressing psychoanalytic themes that revealed the impact of childhood trauma on her art. “The Young Girl” is a 2006 hand-colored dry point print on paper and cloth that encompass her themes of love, sex, gender, and the family.
