ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE


April 27 through May 26, 2012



Robert Mapplethorpe (b. 1946, Floral Park, Queens, New York City, d. 1989, Boston) dominated the world of photography in the late 20th century with his obsessive quest for consummate beauty. Although a cult figure par excellence, he generated controversy like no other photographer of his time. His explicit depictions of nudity and sexual acts met with outrage; the Japanese lucidity of his breathtakingly beautiful flower arrangements met with unqualified admiration. Poetic portraits of his early companion Patty Smith and of Andy Warhol or the bodybuilder Lisa Lyons are invested with a theatricality that still exerts an irresistible appeal.
