Now that the diminutive nonagenarian trickster is spending eternity tickling Satan's anus with an iron feather in Hades, who will succeed to her rumpled plaster-of-paris throne as queen witch of the wild, wide world of art?
TRACEY EMIN 2-1
The snaggletoothed helion is the favorite, right out of the box, reminiscing for the BBC about Louise’s "dirty mind" and their putative close friendship.
CECILY BROWN 5-1
No artist, even Picasso, ever had more genuine sex appeal than Brown. Maybe marriage and motherhood will slow her down to Bourgeois status, by the time she's, say, 110.
SOPHIE CALLE 10-1
Sophie could teach Louise a thing or two about tricks, illusion and fakery, but her anonymous persona would preclude any "salons."
LORNA SIMPSON 15-1
Once you go black, you can't go back; Lorna has been a bit under the radar lately and could use some Bourgeois-style publicity.
MARINA ABRAMOVIC 25-1
You gotta be kidding, Louise wasn't talented enough to clean her toilet.
COURTNEY LOVE 50-1
The Hole honey could use a studio environment to slow down from years of alleged substance abuse and do a crossover into the ever-celebrity-hungry art universe.
When Madge hits menopause, anything is possible, and an over-55 edition of her erotic photo tome Sex could be as groundbreaking as the original!
