About the Work

About the Work

Robert Mapplethorpe is widely recognized as a giant of late 20th century photography. His formalist approach to photography allowed the artist to approach subjects primarily through beauty and composition, and secondarily through content. Silver Dollar is a hand-signed serigraph on linen. The image size is 19.25 x 23 inches.


One of the most critically acclaimed and controversial American artists of the late twentieth century, Mapplethorpe is widely known for daring imagery that deliberately transgresses social norms, and for the censorship debates that transpired around his work in the United States during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Yet the driving force behind his artistic ethos was an obsession with perfection that he bought to bear on his approach to each of his subjects.
