The Artist Rooms collection of Mapplethorpe photographs is one of the best in the world.

Robert Mapplethorpe's works are by turns beautiful, aspirational and salacious. Radical in both its technique and its subjects, his art ranged from classical still lifes to visual exposés of sexual counterculture.

On display are a number of self portraits and portraits by the artist, including ones of his long time muse and roommate, punk singer Patti Smith.
