Robert Mapplethorpe. The Sensitive Lens

19073 01-2

This exhibition shows forty-five works and focuses on some of the themes that distinguish the work of Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989): his study of still lifes, landscapes, classical sculpture and Renaissance composition.

The photographs have been selected and arranged in Galleria Corsini with several different aims: to highlight the aspects of Mapplethorpe’s work that resonate particularly with Galleria Corsini, a space — in both physical and conceptual terms — dedicated to collecting, in order to forge a new relationship between visitors, the works and the areas within the gallery.
