Mapplethorpe gained great fame due to the controversial nature of his works. Born November 4, 1946, in Floral Park, New York, he left home in 1962 and enrolled at the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, in 1963, where he studied painting and sculpture and received his B.F.A. in 1970.
Mapplethorpe had his first substantial shows in 1977, both in New York: an exhibition of photographs of flowers at the Holly Solomon Gallery and one of male nudes and sadomasochistic imagery at the Kitchen.
Mapplethorpe's diverse work -homo erotic images, floral still lifes, pictures of children, commissioned portraits, mixed-media sculpture- is united by the constancy of his approach and technique.
