Exhibition: Robert Mapplethorpe, perfection in form - Galleria dell’Accademia di Firenze
From the Exhibition site, "From its very title, Robert Mapplethorpe, perfection in form, exhibition curators Franca Falletti and Jonathan Nelson intend to express the profound principle that associates the artist of photography with the great Renaissance masters and, in particular, with Michelangelo: the search for balance, the precision and clarity inherent to 'Form' that tends toward perfection by means of the geometric rigour of volumes defined by line and sculpted by light."
