Image of Warhol & Mapplethorpe: Guise & Dolls

« Andy Warhol (1928-1987) and Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1898) are well known for significant work in portraiture and self-portraiture that challenged gender roles and notions of feminity, masculinity and androgyny. This exciting and original book is the first to consider the two artists together, examining the powerful portraits they created during the vibrant and tumutuous era bookended by the Stonewall riots and the AIDS crisis. » (extrait du texte d’introduction).
