Richard Prince: Naked Nurses. JMc & GHB, New York, 2006. First Edition. Small octavo. Edition of 1000 copies. SIGNED on title page. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers. Numerous black-and-white reproductions of found photos. |
A now-classic Richard Prince artist's book that, like similar work by him, began it's life as pulp fiction or soft core genre porn. Using techniques associated with the 'Pictures Generation' and 'appropriation art' Prince, reworked his found material, turning the (very explicit) nurses into (no less explicit) "nurses".
