Richard Prince

Richard Prince Biography

born Panama Canal Zone (PANAMA) 1949

Richard Prince, (born 1949 in the U.S. controlled Panama Canal Zone (now part of Republic of Panama) is a American painter and photographer. Trained as a figure painter, Prince began creating collages containing photographs in 1975. His works have often been the subject of debates within the art world. His image, Untitled (Cowboy), a re-photograph, constructed from cigarette advertisements, was the first "photograph" to raise more than $1 m at auction when sold at Christie's New York in 2005.

Starting in 1977, Prince created controversy by re-photographing four photographs which previously appeared in the New York Times. Within the art world, this became part of a major discussion concerning authorship and authenticity of photographic images, as well as photographic copyright issues. This continued into 1983, when his work Spiritual America featured a photo of Brooke Shields at the age of 10, standing in a bathtub, as an allusion to precocious sexuality and to the Alfred Stieglitz photograph by the same name. The display of this image led to lawsuits by Shields' mother and the original photographer, and led to further discussion within the art community, concerning the role of voyeurism within photography. His Jokes series (beginning 1986) concerns the sexual fantasies and sexual frustrations of middle-class America, using stand-up comedy and burlesque humour.
