Product Description:

This fascinating collection of Robert Mapplethorpe’s photographs contains over 250 striking images — from florals to portraits from nudes to still lifes, as well as images from his controversial X Portfolio 

“…an indispensable publication of lasting significance…”—ARTFIXdaily 

“Authoritative and indispensable.”—Bay Area Reporter 

The legacy of Robert Mapplethorpe (1946 –1989) is rich and complicated, triggering controversy, polarizing critics, and providing inspiration for many artists who followed him. Mapplethorpe taught himself about the history of art, how to run a studio, how to network, and how to keep the public interested in him. At the same time, he honed a distinctive individual vision based on craftsmanship and an aesthetic of classical grace. One of the most influential figures of his time, today Mapplethorpe stands as an example to emerging photographers who continue to test boundaries and concepts of the beautiful.

Robert Mapplethorpe: The Photographs offers a timely and rewarding examination of his oeuvre and influence. Drawing from the extraordinary collection jointly acquired by the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art from The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, as well as the Mapplethorpe Archive housed at the Getty Research Institute, the authors were given the unique opportunity to explore new resources and present fresh perspectives. The result is a fascinating exploration of Mapplethorpe’s career and legacy, with in-depth essays on sexuality and identity, all accompanied by more than 250 striking images covering the remarkable range of his photographic work – from florals to portraits from nudes to still lifes, as well as the controversial X Portfolio. All of these beautifully integrated elements contribute to what is an essential point of access to Mapplethorpe’s work and practice.
