We are excited to invite you to the upcoming JDC Art Circle Event –“Just How She Left It” The Easton Foundation is hosting us for a private tour of the house of Louise Bourgeois. 

Louise Bourgeois was a French-American artist. Best known for her large scale sculpture and installation art, she also was a prolific painter and printmaker. The Easton Foundation was established by Louise Bourgeois in the 1980s as a non-profit and charitable organization. Upon her death in 2010 at the age of 98, Bourgeois bequeathed her home and an adjacent townhouse to become the Foundation’s center. MOMA recently held a major exhibit about Bourgeois’ work.

DESCRIPTION of THE EASTON FOUNDATION

The Easton Foundation was established by Louise Bourgeois in the 1980s as a non-profit and charitable organization. Upon her death in 2010, at the age of 98, Bourgeois bequeathed her home and an adjacent townhouse to become the Foundation’s center.

For the JDC’s upcoming visit, the Foundation is pleased to present a comprehensive survey of photographs, exhibition announcements, and personal writings from Bourgeois’s life and career. These documents hint at the breadth and scope of the Louise Bourgeois Archive, and provide unique insight to the artist’s creative process. A selection of Bourgeois’s artworks from the Foundation’s extensive collection will also be on display, and the backyard sculpture garden will be open, weather permitting. In addition, Louise Bourgeois’s home, where many works were conceived or made, will be accessible by guided tour.
