Robert Mapplethorpe, Self Portrait, 1975 via The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation
Art Space released their second volume of How to Pronounce Artists’ Names. I’ve heard Robert Mapplethorpe’s last name pronounced two ways and had to scour Youtube videos to make sure I used the correct pronunciation for a lecture. These two volumes would have been helpful then! I hope they keep it up! Here are Volume 1 and Volume 2.
