ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE "PORCELAIN PLATES"

Sold

Robert Mapplethorpe needs no introduction.

In 2006 his Foundation, along with the Guggenheim Museum and Nuit Blanche Paris, created a limited edition porcelain plate duo.

During his lifetime Mapplethorpe collaborated with the porcelain manufacturer Swid Powell placing his flower portraits on plates. 

(Today these can be found in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum)

The Foundation's edition was limited to 500 and quickly sold out.

For more information on Robert Mapplethorpe, Caviar20 highly recommends Patti Smith's memoir "Just Kids".
