Holiday Gifts: Mapplethorpe Flowers 2012

American artist Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989) is undoubtedly one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century. Known for his black and white photography of male and female nudes inspired by the sculpture of classical antiquity and the Renaissance, Mapplethorpe's skills also shine forth in a series of stunning flower portraits found in the 2012 Mapplethorpe Flowers Poster Calendar. Each new month reveals exquisite flower compositions beautifully photographed by a master.

The many pleasures of the holiday season includes creating an extravagant and unique list of what gifts to buy or to receive. For the art aficionado, the 2012 Mapplethorpe Flowers Poster Calendar will make a perfect gift.
