Book Description 5 Continents editions, Milano, 2016. Book Condition: NEW. Milano: 5 Continents editions, 2016 9788874397488 2809 340 p. : ill. col., fotografie, biografia, bibliografia ; 31 cm. Questo volume costituisce un punto di accesso essenziale all’opera e alla pratica artistica di Robert Mapplethorpe.Ha lasciato un’eredità ricca e complessa: ha suscitato polemiche, polarizzato i critici e ispirato numerosi artisti che oggi proseguono le piste aperte da questo fotografo fuori del comune. Mosso da un profondo desiderio di celebrità, Mapplethorpe è stato un vero autodidatta, ha imparato tutto da solo: dalla storia dell’arte a come gestire uno studio e mantenere vivo l’interesse del pubblico. Al contempo ha saputo elaborare una visione molto personale, basata su una perfetta conoscenza della tecnica fotografica e su un’estetica dalla grazia classica. Quest’artista, uno dei più influenti e controversi del suo tempo, è tuttora di esempio per i giovani fotografi desiderosi di sondare i limiti della loro arte e di giocare sulle diverse concezioni della bellezza. La pubblicazione di Robert Mapplethorpe. Photographies arriva in un momento in cui è in corso una rivalutazione del suo lavoro. Attingendo alla straordinaria collezione di quasi 2 000 opere pubblicate, oggetti realizzati con tecniche miste e polaroid – collezione acquisita congiuntamente nel 2011 dalla Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation dal J. Paul Getty Museum e dal Los Angeles County Museum of Art –, ma anche agli archivi conservati presso il Getty Research Institute, gli autori e i collaboratori di questo volume hanno potuto esplorare materiali e documenti nuovi e presentare prospettive inedite sull’artista.

Book Description Five Continents Editions, 2016. Book Condition: new. Los Angeles, Getty Center, March 15 - July 31, 2016. Montréal, Musée des Beaux-arts, September 10, 2016 - January 22, 2017. Sydney, Art Gallery of New South Wales, October 28, 2017 - February 04, 2018. Edited by Martineau Paul and Salvesen Britt. French Text. Milano, 2016; clothbound, pp. 340, 241 col. ill., cm 24,5x30,5. Offering an extraordinary selection of illustrations-from familiar masterworks to previously unpublished images, and from elegant floral still lifes to controversial erotic photographs of the gay s/m community-and featuring an introduction and five in-depth essays on sexuality and identity, all complemented by other valuable resources, this book represents an essential point of access to Robert Mapplethorpe's work and practice. Robert Mapplethorpe's legacy is rich and complicated, triggering controversy, polarizing critics, and providing inspiration and new pathways for many artists who followed him. Driven by his desire for fame, 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 and controversial artists of his time, today Mapplethorpe stands as an example to emerging photographers who continue to experiment with the boundaries of acceptability and concepts of the beautiful. His life and work continue to reward examination, taking on new relevance with shifting social and artistic concerns. Robert Mapplethorpe. Photograpies offers just such a timely and rewarding examination. Drawing from the extraordinary collection of nearly two thousand editioned works, mixed-media objects, and Polaroid instant prints-jointly acquired in 2011 by the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art from The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation-as well as from the Robert Mapplethorpe Archive housed at the Getty Research Institute, the authors and contributors were given the unique opportunity to explore new resources and present fresh perspectives. The results are a fascinating introduction to Mapplethorpe's career and legacy and five in-depth essays on sexuality and identity, all accompanied by a rich selection of illustrations covering the remarkable range of Mapplethorpe's photographic work. Additional resources include the artist's vast exhibition history, an illustrated chronology of his life and work, and a useful bibliography. All of these elements, beautifully integrated, contribute to what promises to become an indispensable publication of lastingsignificance and an essential point of access to Robert Mapplethorpe's work and practice.
