Catalogue Note

Long before he was famous for his floral still lifes and boundary-pushing sadomasochistic portraits, Mapplethorpe was a young artist finding his voice while studying at Pratt Institute in the late 1960s.  This vibrant, early drawing — with its unrestrained use of color — was made while he was still enrolled at Pratt.
