Heads Up: Do not abandon me

Tracey, would you give me a hand for a moment?

Emin's take on Bourgeois works shown in London

It is perhaps the art world's most intriguing collaborations of recent years; drawings begun by the great French artist Louise Bourgeois shortly before she died in May this year, and completed by Britart icon Tracey Emin.

Crazy Age: Thoughts on being Old, By Jane Miller

Reading Jane Miller's Crazy Age is rather like peering into one of the cluttered-up drawers she talks about being saddled with, now that she's old. It's a shame that those thoughts are presented in such a confused jumble. There's a lot here that should have been put into a bag and taken off to Age Concern. Is this a book about how novelists and writers have viewed youth and age through the centuries? Is it an autobiography? Is it a treatise on old age? And what's all that waffle doing here, linking all these disparate bits together?

Louise Bourgeois: Inventive and influential sculptor whose difficult childhood informed her life's work

When Tate Modern opened its doors in May 2000, visitors were alarmed to find the gallery's Turbine Hall menaced by a 35-foot spider. It wasn't the creature's size that bothered the public so much as that it was called Maman ("Mummy") and had been made by a little old lady, herself the mother of three. The lady in question was Louise Bourgeois, who was 88 at the time and has died in New York at the age of 98.

Louise Bourgeois: 'Shocking, bruising, ghoulish and erotic'

Louise Bourgeois had the ability to make us feel it was she who was observing and judging us, even as we admired her unsettling and strange works of art, says Michael Glover

Artist Louise Bourgeois dies, aged 98
