The first image in Mignon Nixon’s new study of Louise Bourgeois is a photograph of the artist taken in\ud 1947 in a New York apartment. She is kneeling on the floor in a gesture of mock homage to Joan Miró\ud who is enthroned in an armchair and cloaked in a painted robe with each bare foot resting on a pile of\ud books about Picasso. A note tells us that the photograph was originally published in Artforum on the\ud occasion of the 1994 Miró retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The re-publication\ud of the photograph, this time at the beginning of an art historical monograph devoted to the work of\ud Louise Bourgeois, provides a neat visual condensation of the framework that structures this study of\ud her practice: surrealism, psychoanalysis and feminism.
