In the world of art, gender, race and social class issues were ignored traditionally and it was assumed there is a kind of human that is universal, historical, without sex and is male and white of course. From this perspective, woman was only as the subject of artistic creation and thus art has been mixed with gender. But Feminist Aesthetics increases woman value from just being a subject and defines another view which based on that woman as a creator of art has the same value as a man. Also it innovates new art patterns that put a spotlight on paying attention to woman and her issues along with aesthetics issues.

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the artworks of French - American sculptor, Louise Bourgeois, from the perspective of Feminist Aesthetics. Her works were inspired by the psychological conflicts, feminist symbols, and a fertile imagination, and many experts believe that she is one of the pioneers of modern feminist art.

This study, at first talks about the feminist aesthetics, then by reviewing the biography of Louise Bourgeois and offering some hypothesis from psychoanalytic point of view, her works are analyzed and adapted to feminist aesthetics. To achieve these goals, the articles that reveal psychological and social aspects of her views and investigate their influences on her works, have been studied by the library research method.
