RIP Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois dies and the art world loses another hero.

The loss is entirely ours as she lived 98+ years and beheld the admiration of her peers for three decades. A good life.
thus far those who have died in this recent display of death's power lived good lives, long lives (except Coleman who had health issues from a young age). A few did so many drugs and drank to an excess that it was a miracle they lived as long as they did, I'm sure they would agree. But now I am waiting for the other proverbial shoe (apologies for the cliche) to be let go.


  1. Every day, it seems like another name. Near the end of the Oscar and Grammy shows each year they show a collage of people who have died in the past year. that part always hits me like a mack truck...I know none of us is getting out of here alive, but still...
