About the Artist:
Since the late 1970s, Richard Prince has become renowned for his use of image appropriation to question and deconstruct the meaning of American popular culture. Through the figures of celebrities, cowboys, and the narrative punchlines of societally themed jokes, his works go so far as to mirror and parody the construction of American identity, whilst concurrently redefining the concept of authorship. The artist has been the subject of several major museum exhibitions, including at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2007, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1992. Prince currently lives and works in Upstate New York.
