En 1099, Olivier d'Ussé est le seigneur des lieux. Vers la fin de la guerre de cent ans, en 1424, Jean V de Bueil, comte de Sancerre, seigneur d'Ussé et capitaine du roi, membre d'une des plus illustres familles tourangelles, fait construire la structure de base du château actuel. Il meurt en 1477. Son fils Antoine, seigneur d'Ussé en 1456, épouse en 1462 Jeanne de Valois, fille de Charles VII et d'Agnès Sorel. Elle lui apporte une dot de 40 000 écus d'or. Dans les années 1460, il entreprend la reconstruction du château dans le style du XVe siècle. Surendetté, Antoine de Bueil vend Ussé à Jacques d'Espinay en 1485. D'origine bretonne, Jacques d'Espinay est le fils du chambellan de François II de Bretagne. Il devient lui-même chambellan des rois Charles VIII et Louis XII, puis accède à la fonction de grand-maître de l'hôtel de la reine. Il poursuit les travaux du château et fonde en 1521 la collégiale d'Ussé destinée à devenir la chapelle funéraire de sa famille. Son fils Charles d'Espinay et sa belle-fille Lucrèce de Pons poursuivent les travaux. Leur fils, René d'Espinay, leur succède en 1534. La chapelle, dédiée à Sainte-Anne, est consacrée le 11 août 1538. Lui-même criblé de dettes, René vend le château en 1557 à Suzanne de Bourbon. La fille de Suzanne de Bourbon, Louise de Rieux, apporte le domaine à son époux René de Lorraine, marquis d'Elbeuf. Toujours par mariage, Ussé passe à Henri de Savoie, duc de Nemours, qui meurt en 1620. Après une succession de propriétaires le château est acquis en 1659 par Thomas Bernin, marquis de Valentinay, secrétaire du roi. C'est en 1664 que le marquis de Valentinay fait aménager les jardins d'après des dessins de Le Nôtre. Dessin coloré représentant le château d'Ussé, 1699. En septembre 1700, la châtellenie d'Ussé est érigée en marquisat en faveur de Louis II Bernin de Valentinay, receveur général des finances à Tours

Between 1958 and 1961 Picasso worked extensively within the printmaking art of linocuts. Some of his most important and incredible graphic works come from this period. In 1962 Gallery Louise Leiris an important gallery/dealer in Paris, who has long been closely associated with Picasso's graphic works, "recreated" the linocuts of the previous four years in one important and monumental suite. The quality and attention to detail of the original linocuts was accomplished with precision. There have been later reissues of the suite but they were not of the same quality.

World renowned sculptor Louise Bourgeois lifts the veil on her life and work in this revealing portrait of a modern artist. Focusing on themes of sexuality, femininity, and isolation, her work has been associated with all the major artistic movements of the 20th century, yet Bourgeois was never stalled by the dogma of any one school. In a career that spanned 50 years, she was always at the vanguard, moving from painting to sculpture and finally to performance art. She is known for creating large-scale works, such as her 35-foot-tall spider, Maman, and for experimenting with unusual materials like latex and silicone. In her life outside the art world, she remains outspoken and provocative, as the documentary attests. In French, German, and English with optional English subtitles. Distributed by Tubemogul.

We remember her [Pandora] most vividly because it is she who released human suffering from the box the god's entrusted her with, only to leave hope at the bottom. According to Jean-Pierre Vernant11 the mythological figure of Pandora represents the answers to the questions: What is man? Why are there men and women? Why is there good and evil? Why is there image versus reality? It is in this figure of mythos and duality, a figure that embodies the tension between hope and fear, that the main themes of Louise Bourgeois' work may be found. Louise Bourgeois, who was born in Paris in 1911 worked more than half a century in New York. In fact her creative work reflects the century, with its revolutions and world wars, Utopian hopes and crippling disillusionments. Never one to blindly follow fashion in art, she has been compared with such masters of the 20th century as Constantin Brancusi and Vladimir Tatlin, Hans Arp and Alberto Giacometti, and even Joseph Beuys and Bruce Nauman. Her work is abstract and figurative, realistic and phantasmagorical, and is made from all manner of material such as wood, marble, bronze, plaster, latex and fabric. Probing themes of universal import, it is also highly autobiographical. In fact the personal and traumatic is Bourgeois' most vital material. Throughout the 20th century one might say Louise Bourgeois has created an idiosyncratic symbolic dictionary in which certain personal experiences and fantasies are concretized into expressive images. In the words of the artist, "Symbols are only empty bottles. They function only through what you put in them -- personal symbols mean personal alphabet, our uniqueness is all we have." 3 For example, her use of the spider is not a sign of arachnophobia (terror of spiders), but a sign of the enveloping and diligent mother. In much the same manner, sewing needles are not represented as aggressive instruments but symbols of magic to signify the restoration of losses. And home is depicted not as a refuge, but as an enclosure where one is in danger of losing oneself. These objects thus recover magical properties connected to personal experiences well known since childhood. Childhood, in the artist's words, "has never lost its magic, it has never lost its mystery, and it has never lost its drama".4 In fact, Louise Bourgeois describes herself as a woman without secrets. For her, sculpture is an instrument of exorcism, a place to work through traumatic childhood experiences. In 1982 the artist formulated this principle in her artist's project for Artforum called "Child Abuse" where she says, "Everyday you have to abandon your past or accept it and then if you cannot accept it you become a sculptor." In this project, she disclosed the secret of her life --a tale that reads like a melodramatic novel. Louise Bourgeois grew up triangulated between an adoring but ill mother and an authoritarian father whose mistress of ten years was also Louise's governess. The complex relationship with her father, in which the duality of love and hate were manifested, resulted in a lifelong ambivalence to authority. Within this context it is no coincidence that her creative work is metaphorically compared to the space of memory 5. It can be said that Bourgeois' drawings, prints, and sculptures constitute a unique theatre of memory. Each work is related to one or another important event in her life on the principle of free association. Memories therefore play a leading, not auxiliary, role.
