Robert Mapplethorpe Baby's Breath 1/10

About the Item

Robert Mapplethorpe is no doubt a founding father to modern photography. Through iconic black-and-white imagery, Mapplethorpe gained both recognition and infamy with his often-controversial work. Themes of sexuality, race, and gender reflected the conversations buzzing in the streets during the 70s/80s New York City art scene. Even in his classic 'Baby's Breath,' Mapplethorpe uses high-contrast and symmetric composition to further communicate the duality of sophistication and provocative art. Considering that a majority of his work is explicit, this limited-edition print will allow you to celebrate Mapplethorpe in your space without startling visitors. Robert Mapplethorpe (American 1946-1989), Baby's Breath, Silver Gelatin Photograph. Image: 15 x 15 in. (38.10 x 38.10 cm.), Frame: 25 x 25 in. (63.50 x 63.50 cm.) Provenance: From a distinguished D.C. estate purchased on December 8, 1986, from the Robert Miller Gallery in NYC with original receipt.
