Robert Mapplethorpe's oeuvre is distinguished by his meticulous black-and-white photography, which explores themes like sexuality, beauty, and the human form. His work pushes the boundaries of artistic expression and has left a significant mark on the world of photography. This work is from Mapplethorpe's notorious "Z" portfolio, notable for its explicit exploration of sexuality, which challenged societal norms and prompted debates about artistic freedom and censorship. It remains a pivotal part of the artistic discourse on these themes. – A fine tonal print in excellent condition.

Lit.: Robert Mapplethorpe. Black Males. Galerie Jurka, Amsterdam 1980, illustrated.
