ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE: THE NYMPH PHOTOGRAPHY. Germano Celant. Skira editore, Milan, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York. 200 pp. with 176 ills. (22 col.). 29 x 15 cm. ISBN 9788857222448 In English.
Publisher's description: Twenty-five years after Mapplethorpe's death, an overview on his nudes, portraits, self-portraits, floral still lifes, and other works compiled by the art critic Germano Celant. Robert Mapplethorpe's wide, provocative, and powerful body of work has established him as one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. The American photographer is mostly known for images that simultaneously challenge and adhere to classical aesthetic standards: stylized compositions of male and female nudes, delicate flower still lifes, and studio portraits of artists and celebrities, to list a few of his preferred genres. Since 1977 Germano Celant has come in contact with Robert Mapplethorpe, realizing interviews and writing essays on the occasion of several publications and exhibitions. For the first time, this volume gathers the complete anthology of Celant's writings on the artist: from the 1983 exhibition at Palazzo Fortuny, Venice, projected with the collaboration of the artist himself, to the posthumous writings published in the catalogs prepared on the occasion of the exhibitions at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, and at the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, since 1990.
