Robert Mapplethorpe was born on November 4, 1946 and died on March 9, 1989; he was an American photographer, known for his sensitive yet blunt treatment of controversial subject-matter in the large-scale, highly stylized black and white medium of photography. His work featured an array of subjects, including celebrity portraits, male and female nudes, self-portraits and still-life images of flowers. His most controversial work is that of the underground BDSM scene in the late 1960s and early 1970s of New York City. The homoeroticism of this work fuelled a national debate over the public funding of controversial artwork.
Mapplethorpe was born in Floral Park, Queens, New York City, the son of Joan Dorothy (Maxey) and Harry Irving Mapplethorpe, an electrical engineer. He was of English, Irish, and German descent, and grew up as a Roman Catholic in Our Lady of the Snows Parish. He had five brothers and sisters. He studied for a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, where he majored in Graphic Arts, though he dropped out in 1969 before finishing his degree. Mapplethorpe lived with his close friend Patti Smith from 1967 to 1972, and she supported him by working in bookstores. They created art together, and maintained a close relationship.
Mapplethorpe's studio at 24 Bond Street in Manhattan, later kept by him for use as darkroom.
Mapplethorpe took his first photographs in the late 1960s or early 1970s using a Polaroid camera. In 1972 he met art curator Sam Wagstaff who would become his mentor and lifetime companion. In the mid-1970s Wagstaff acquired a Hasselblad medium-format camera and Mapplethorpe began taking photographs of a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, including artists, composers, and socialites. During this time, he became friends with New Orleans artist George Dureau, whose work had a profound impact on Mapplethorpe, so much so that he restaged many of Dureau's early photographs. From 1977 until 1980, Mapplethorpe was the lover of writer and Drummer magazine editor Jack Fritscher who introduced him to Mineshaft.
By the 1980s Mapplethorpe's subject matter focused on statuesque male and female nudes, delicate flower still lifes, and highly formal portraits of artists and celebrities. Mapplethorpe's first studio was at 24 Bond Street in Manhattan. In the 1980s, Wagstaff bought a top-floor loft at 35 West 23rd Street for Robert, where he lived and used as his shooting space. He kept the Bond Street loft as his darkroom. In 1988, Mapplethorpe selected Patricia Morrisroe to write his biography, which was based on more than 300 interviews with celebrities, critics, lovers, and Mapplethorpe himself.
Nearly a year before his death, the ailing Mapplethorpe helped found the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, Inc. His vision for the Foundation was that it would be "the appropriate vehicle to protect his work, to advance his creative vision, and to promote the causes he cared about". Since his death, the Foundation has not only functioned as his official estate and helped promote his work throughout the world, but it has also raised and donated millions of dollars to fund medical research in the fight against AIDS and HIV infection. The Foundation also determines which galleries represent Mapplethorpe's art. The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation donated the Robert Mapplethorpe Archive to the Getty Research Institute. The archive spans from 1970 to 1989.
Mapplethorpe died on the morning of March 9, 1989 at the age of 42 due to complications from HIV/AIDS, in a Boston, Massachusetts hospital. His body was cremated. His ashes are interred at St. John's Cemetery, Queens in New York, at his mother's grave-site, etched "Maxey".

Robert Mapplethorpe né le 4 novembre 1946, à Floral Park, État de New York et mort le 9 mars 1989, à Boston; il est un photographe américain célèbre pour ses portraits en noir et blanc très stylisés, ses photos de fleurs et ses nus masculins. Le caractère cru et érotique des œuvres du milieu de sa carrière a déclenché des polémiques sur le financement public de l'art aux États-Unis et a provoqué le ‘’culture wars’’
En 1963, Mapplethorpe rentre au Pratt Institute du quartier de Brooklyn à New York, où il étudie le dessin, la peinture et la sculpture. Notamment influencé par Joseph Cornell et Marcel Duchamp, c'est à cette époque qu'il commence à réaliser des travaux utilisant des techniques mixtes. En particulier, Mapplethorpe réalise pendant cette période de nombreux collages utilisant des extraits de journaux et de magazines. Au terme de ses études, il reçoit un Bachelor of Fine Arts.
Renonçant à la voie que lui avait destinée son père — le dessin publicitaire — il décide de rompre de manière brutale avec sa famille. Il s'installe à New-York et vit d'emplois peu stables, découvrant à la même époque le cannabis — qu'il fumait très régulièrement, d'après Patti Smith — et le LSD.
En 1986, les médecins annoncent à Mapplethorpe qu'il est porteur du SIDA. Conscient de sa maladie, il multiplie ses efforts de création et cherche à développer son style personnel. Il vise à lier tous les aspects de son art, les fleurs, les corps, la sexualité et les portraits. Il entreprend de numéroter les tirages qu'il choisit d'éditer. Une importante rétrospective lui est consacrée au Whitney Museum of American Art en 1988. La même année, il fonde sa propre fondation, la Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation confiée à son avocat Michael Stout, pour la préservation de son patrimoine, pour démocratiser la photographie et pour soutenir financièrement les recherches concernant le SIDA et les infections liées au VIH. Mapplethorpe décède en 1989, âgé de 42 ans.

Peu après le décès de Mapplethorpe, des guerres culturelles éclatent aux États-Unis sous la pression du sénateur Jesse Helms qui fait annuler l'exposition The Perfect Moment, consacrée au photographe, à la Corcoran Gallery of Art à Washington. Le directeur du Contemporary Arts Center de Cincinnati, Dennis Barrie, est également arrêté pour obscénité à laquelle le nom de Mapplethorpe sera souvent associé. Barrie sera cependant acquitté et la valeur du travail de Mapplethorpe, compromise dans ces débats polémiques, finira par s'imposer.

Charles BRESMAL (1944)

Fine art photography by Charles Bresmal. - Le Tarn, France - July 2011

Photographie d’art de Charles Bresmal. - Le Tarn, France - juillet 2011

#photography #photographie #art #kunst #MasterArtPhotographer #photographe #artiste #artist #CharlesBresmal

Charles Bresmal born in Angleur; Liege Belgium in 1944; He is a Belgian painter, photographer and poet.
Studied painting at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Liège under the direction of Joseph Verhaeghe and Jean Debattice.
Brussels, P.B.A .: Young Belgian Painting Award 1972.

A character landing more or less in October 1963 at the Academy of Fine Arts of Liège coming from the Madrid Academy of Fine Arts, he had already acquired a great knowledge of artistic practice and pushed by great curiosity, always staying awake and waiting for discoveries. A glutton and ‘’gourmand’’ of creation, an indefatigable bulimic, curious about everything and trying everything, as a result he makes paintings from figuration to abstraction, from abstraction to photo paintings and photos to evolve finally to the video and thus express his poetry, his imagination and his creativity. Becoming a teacher was not an end but a need to communicate his enthusiasm to others and to work as a team. It's hard to talk about a friend. He was passionate and exciting, sometimes surprised and astonishing, with a bit of naiveté. All that was needed to make him a character out of the ordinary and he left a great mark at us all. Text by J.L. Nyst.

Un personnage atterrissant plus ou moins en octobre I963 a l'académie des Beaux-Arts de Liège en provenance de l`académie des Beaux-Arts de Madrid, ayant déjà acquis une grande connaissance de la pratique artistique et une grande curiosité, toujours en éveil et aussi en attente de découverte.

Loving Laos and living there since 2006, Bernard discovered during his travels an abandoned house whose walls were covered with drawings and graffiti. The poetry of the place with both its sweetness and innocence; but also sometimes the violence of the drawings is what the artist wanted to capture on film. The drawings for most childish, the designs have evolved over time, retouched by different hands, like an exquisite corpse.

Amoureux du Laos et y vivant depuis 2006, M. Bernard a découvert au cours de ses voyages une bâtisse abandonnée dont les murs étaient couverts de dessins et de graffitis. C’est à la fois la poésie du lieu ainsi que la douceur, l’innocence et parfois la violence des dessins que l’artiste a voulu saisir sur sa pellicule. Pour la plupart enfantins, les dessins ont évolué au fil du temps, retouchés par des mains différentes, à la manière d’un cadavre exquis.

Lucien Hervé was born László Elkán on 7 August 1910 in Hungary and died on 26 June 2007 in Paris; he was a French photographer of Hungarian origin. He was notable for his architectural photography, beginning with his work for Le Corbusier.
Lucien Hervé is one of the rare photographers to combine a humanist outlook with an architect's eye. His characteristic style of cropped frames, plunging or oblique views, and pared-down compositions tending toward abstraction distinguish his work from that of his contemporaries.

#biography
+++
Lucien Hervé né László Elkán le 7 août 1910 en Hongrie et mort le 26 juin 2007 à Paris, il est un photographe français d'origine hongroise.
Dans les photographies de Lucien Hervé l’ombre et la lumière forment des contrastes riches et parfois violents, des compositions ou se retrouvent sans doute les traces proches ou lointaines des recherches du Bauhaus ou des constructivistes, en tous cas le goût de réinterprétations et de structuration du monde, de l’invention permanente.

Richard William Hamilton born on 24 February 1922 and died on 13 September 2011; He was an English painter and collage artist. His 1955 exhibition Man, Machine and Motion (Hatton Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne) and his 1956 collage Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?, produced for the This Is Tomorrow exhibition of the Independent Group in London, are considered by critics and historians to be among the earliest works of pop art. A major retrospective of his work was at Tate Modern until May 2014
Wiki #biography
+++
Henri-Robert-Marcel Duchamp was born July 28, 1887, near Blainville, France.
In 1904, he joined his artist brothers, Jacques Villon and Raymond Duchamp-Villon, in Paris, where he studied painting at the Academie Julian until 1905.
Duchamps early works were Post-Impressionist in style. He exhibited for the first time in 1909 at the Salon des Independants and the Salon d’ Automne in Paris. His paintings of 1911 were directly related to Cubism but emphasized successive images of a single body in motion.
In 1912, he painted the definitive version of Nude Descending a Staircase; this was shown at the Salon de la Section d’Or of that same year and subsequently created great controversy at the Armory Show in New York in 1913.
Duchamps radical and iconoclastic ideas predated the founding of the Dada movement in Zurich in 1916. By 1913, he had abandoned traditional painting and drawing for various experimental forms, including mechanical drawings, studies, and notations that would be incorporated in a major work, The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (1915-23; also known as The Large Glass). In 1914, Duchamp introduced his ready-made common objects, sometimes altered, presented as works of art, which had a revolutionary impact upon many painters and sculptors. In 1915, Duchamp traveled to New York, where his circle included Katherine Dreier and Man Ray, with whom he founded the Societe Anonyme in 1920, as well as Louise and Walter Arensberg, Francis Picabia, and other avant-garde figures.
After playing chess avidly for nine months in Buenos Aires, Duchamp returned to France in the summer of 1919 and associated with the Dada group in Paris.
In New York in 1920, he made his first motor-driven constructions and invented Rrose Slavy, his feminine alter ego.
Duchamp moved back to Paris in 1923 and seemed to have abandoned art for chess but in fact continued his artistic experiments.
From the mid-1930s, he collaborated with the Surrealists and participated in their exhibitions.
Duchamp settled permanently in New York in 1942 and became a United States citizen in 1955.
During the 1940s, he associated and exhibited with the Surrealist migrs in New York, and in 1946 began Etant donnes: 1. la chute d’eau 2. le gaz d’clairage, a major assemblage on which he worked secretly for the next 20 years.
He died October 2, 1968, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France.
#biography
+++
Marcel Duchamp est né à Blainville-Crevon (Seine-Maritime), le 28 juillet 1887 et mort à Neuilly-sur-Seine, le 2 octobre 1968; Il est un peintre, plasticien, homme de lettres français, naturalisé américain en 1955.
Depuis les années 1960, il est considéré par nombre d'historiens de l'art et de critiques comme l'artiste le plus important du XXe siècle. Déjà, André Breton le qualifiait d'« homme le plus intelligent du siècle ». Notamment grâce à son invention des ready-made, son travail et son attitude artistique continuent d'exercer une influence majeure sur les différents courants de l'art contemporain.
Il est vu comme le précurseur et l'annonciateur de certains aspects les plus radicaux de l’évolution de l'art depuis 1945. Les protagonistes de l'art minimal, de l'art conceptuel et de l'art corporel (body art), dans leur inspiration, leur démarche artistique et idéologique, témoignent de l'influence déterminante de l’œuvre de Duchamp. Il aurait également été, d'après les nombreux essais qui lui sont consacrés, l'inspirateur d'autres courants artistiques dont le pop art, le néodadaïsme, l'op art et le cinétisme.
