Yayoi Kusama

At 85, Kusama is one of the art world’s grandes dames, and also one of its great eccentrics. After making a name for herself in New York in the 1960s as a renegade who threw public orgies and covered everything from naked bodies to horses in polka dots, she retreated to cope with her mental illness and returned to Japan, which did not initially embrace its taboo-busting prodigal daughter. But in the past 15 or so years Kusama has been granted a critical reassessment with recent retrospectives propelling her back into the limelight.
