A rare drawing by Louise Bourgeois is seen on the apron of this gardening set that includes an apron, a trowel and hand rake. The pattern was inspired by her fabric book Ode À L’Oubli, 2004, which featured collages made from fragments of old clothing and household items.
Louise Bourgeois grew up surrounded by the textiles from her parents’ tapestry restoration workshop, and helped them by drawing in the sections of the missing parts that were to be repaired. Her work was seen in In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States, organized by LACMA.
