Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) was a world-renowned modern artist noted for her sculptures made of wood, steel, stone, and cast rubber. Her most famous spider sculpture, Maman, stands more than 30 feet high. Just as spiders spin and repair their webs, Louise's own mother was a weaver of tapestries. Louise spent her childhood in France as an apprentice to her mother before she became a tapestry artist herself. She worked with fabric throughout her career, and this biographical picture book shows how Bourgeois's childhood experiences weaving with her loving, nurturing mother provided the inspiration for her most famous works. With a beautifully nuanced and poetic story, this book stunningly captures the relationship between mother and daughter and illuminates how memories are woven into us all.… (mer)

Contemporary artist Louise Bourgeois grew up looking up to her mother. Her unique mind immediately seemed to make the connection of her mother, a women who would weave tapestries to spiders weaving their webs. Unlike many people, Louise was clearly unafraid of spiders and actually saw the beauty within their character. She depicted this into her art for many years to come. "Cloth Lullaby" was such a gentle read, from the writing to the illustrations. The words were excellently woven together and the watercolor illustrations were unlike anything I have every seen before. ( )

This book tells the story of the French artist Louise Bourgeois. Louise's mother repaired tapestries for a living, and Louise was inspired by this. She learned how to help the family business. When Louise's mother died, she quit studying math and the stars and focused on creating art. Some of Louise's most famous works are sculptures she made that look like giant spiders; she says that they remind her of her mother's tapestries. Later in life, she made cloth drawings and cloth books. She made a cloth lullaby with all of her childhood memories woven into it before she died. This was a good book, and I learned a lot about an artist I had not heard of before. However, what really stood out was the illustrations. The limited color palette of reds, creams, and blues was really powerful. The lines and colors used reflect the woven threads in the tapestries Louise grew up repairing. The drawings are whimsical and have a lot of hidden details that go along well with the text. ( )

The first thing you may notice about this book is the gorgeous illustrative style in a restricted color palette of intense dark blues, watery reds and etched blacks and greys. The description of Louise Bourgeois' childhood reads like magical fiction, leaving the mature reader with a desire to know more about her extraordinary life. For a young reader, the idea of such a childhood could open doors of possibility, fantasy and form a foundation for the 'art or craft' conversation. This book could be used as an intro to a weaving or textile activity, a writing activity or from an Arts Therapy approach, as she turns her grief into art, using the skills endowed to her by her rich family tradition. Well researched and a good first example for young writers on how to cite your sources quoted. ( )

A gentle biography about the artist Louise Bourgeois. She expressed her life memories through her art. She made a "cloth lullaby" using clothing and fabrics from her childhood. The illustrations went very well with the story, they were colorful, calm and gentle. ( )

A gorgeously illustrated story of French artist Louise Bourgeois in a book presumably meant for children but with such sophisticated artwork and text that it works for readers of all ages. The Bourgeois family specialized in repairing and weaving old tapestries and frayed cloths, and Louise came to see her mother as a kindly spider, a repairer of broken things. As she said: “If you bash into the web of a spider she doesn’t get mad. She weaves and she repairs it.” Her mother was her best friend and Louise took her death very badly, being still a student when she passed away, which explains why she went on to sculpt giant spiders which were meant to celebrate her mother when Louise later became an artist.

I’m a huge fan of illustrator Isabelle Arsenault and am simply in love with her illustration style, blending beautiful watercolours with vintage drawings and imagery, often with a collage effect with a stunning colour palette. She’s a fellow Montrealer and I consider myself incredibly lucky to have once been in a position to commission artwork from her to illustrate a difficult subject matter for the magazine I was working for at the time. I did so because she also has a huge talent conceptually and was able to come up with a truly novel idea to illustrate an article that was impossible to match a photograph to. While she is a genius creatively and technically she is also humble and perfectly pleasant. I have the greatest respect for this artist and am always eager to see her latest projects. This one, like so much of her work, combines beauty and high quality with a very interesting subject matter. ( )
