Although titled "The Complete Prints & Books," this website on the work of Louise Bourgeois, created by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), is actually evolving. The site will "eventually contain some 3,500 images": digitized versions of prints, illustrated books, and sculpture by Bourgeois, who died in 2010 at the age of 98. The main sections of the site are: Biography, Chronology, Essay, and Bibliography. The Essay is based on "A Drama of the Self: Louise Bourgeois as Printmaker" by Deborah Wye, from the exhibition catalog for the first retrospective exhibition of Bourgeois' prints, in 1994, at MoMA. The Chronology is a timeline of Bourgeois' long life, and is illustrated beginning in 1938, the year she created her first lithographic print: "St Germain," a holiday greeting card. MoMA plans to add material gradually, at least once a year.
