24. Sleeping Figure by Louise Bourgeois, 1950

Medium: Painted Balsa Wood

Another work by Louise Bourgeois portrays a wooden figure that Bourgeois herself described as "a war figure that cannot face the world and is defensive." This work was part of a collection known as The Personages, which included wood sculptures made by the artist in the mid-to-late 1940s.
