ABSTRACT
This article reports on the sale of the stainless steel and tapestry "Spider," by Louise Bourgeois, at Christie's in Paris, France on May 27, 2008. The sale made Bourgeois the highest priced living female artist. However, although he welcomed the record, dealer Iwan Wirth commented on the discrepancy between it and the record for a living male artist.
