Item #14855 FLOWERS. Foreword by Patti Smith. Robert Mapplethorpe.

FLOWERS. Foreword by Patti Smith

Boston: Bulfich Press/Little Brown & Co, (1990). First edition. Hardcover. 4to. 50 color illustrations. A breathtaking collection of flower photographs by Mapplethorpe. All in color, some of his final work. Though his best known flower images were in black and white, this book reveals his genius in color. The photographs here range from images of the early 1980s to many taken in the months before his death. The latter, in particular, are astounding in their intensity; here one finds both erotic drama and absolute clarity of composition, Mapplethorpe's gift at its most bold and uncompromising. A near fine copy in a near fine, clean dust jacket. Item #14855
