The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation Gift
In 1992, the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation named the Guggenheim Foundation the recipient of approximately 200 of Mapplethorpe’s finest photographs and unique objects. Realized in several stages between 1993 and 1998, the gift made the Guggenheim the most comprehensive public repository of this important American artist’s work, and also inaugurated the museum’s photography collection and exhibition program.
