French-born American sculptor Louise Bourgeois
has died in New York, at the age of 98.
Based in New York since 1938, Bourgeois gained fame late in her long career
and kept working to the end of her life.
Her giant spider sculptures have been exhibited around the world
and earned her the nickname of Spiderwoman.
Her abstract explorations of themes such as birth,
sexuality and death made her one of the world’s most influential contemporary artists.
Bourgeois suffered a heart attack two days ago.
