Unlike London, whose Tate Museum owns Louise Bourgeois' Maman (given as a gift by the artist and an anonymous benefactor), San Francisco only had Louise Bourgeois' Crouching Spider on temporary loan (for eight months initially and then for another ten).
Crouching Spider was purchased by a private buyer for $6mil and will be moved to Houston by the end of the month.
Visit soon! Pier 14. Can't miss it!
