The Artist Who Turned Her Bed Into a Million-Dollar Work of Art

"Tracey Emin has been noted for her provocative and sexually explicit work for decades. Emin emerged in the late 1980s, during the 'Young British Artists' movement, with controversial pieces such as 'Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995,' 'My Bed' and 'The Last Thing I Said To You is Don't Leave Me Here.' Throughout her career, she has produced a variety of work ranging from paintings and textiles to sculpture and video, many of which reflect her troubled childhood and teenage years. In 2007, Emin was inducted into the Royal Academy of Arts in London, and in 2011, she was appointed as a professor of drawing." (Source:
