N.B. Nan Goldin creates intensely personal, spontaneous, sexual, and transgressive photographs of her friends, lovers, and family. After graduating from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University in 1977/1978, she moved to New York where she captured the city's vibrant post-Stonewall gay subculture, as well as the subculture of heavy drug use associated with the Bowery neighborhood. This body of work, including Greer and Robert on the Bed, resulted in her provocative and influential project, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency.
Estimate $6,000-8,000

Sheet size 16 x 20 in. Framed with glass. No additional issues to report.
