Former curator Samuel J. Wagstaff Jr. (American, 1921-1987) and artist Robert Mapplethorpe (American, 1946-1989) came from very different backgrounds and yet they formed a bond that had a powerful impact on the art scene during the 1970s and 1980s. In an illustrated talk, Paul Martineau, Associate Curator of Photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum, will explore their unique relationship and their enduring vision, influence, and contributions to photography and collecting.
