Background:
Bourgeois created prints as holiday gifts for a circle of friends. "Pink Days" was made in two versions, one a small screenprint on paper, and the other, a larger digital print on fabric, with both used as holiday gifts in 2008. The larger fabric version was made for Bourgeois's VIP list.
Curatorial Remarks:
Bourgeois's use of music paper as a support for drawings goes back to the early 1940s. Here, Dyenamix used screenprint to create the music paper background, and the G-clef.
Other Remarks:
According to Bourgeois's assistant, Jerry Gorovoy, "pink days" meant good days and happiness for the artist, and "blue days" meant bad days and depression.
