Lot Details

This artwork portrays famed transgender model, artist, and fashion icon, Amanda Lepore, kneeling provocatively atop a mirrored surface. "Amanda Lepore: Mirror Image" (1999) is characteristic of LaChapelle's unique style, which transcends the worlds of fashion and art and often exploits popular culture with an air of excessive beauty. The artwork measures 50 x 60 inches (127 x 152.4 cm), is an edition of 3 and comes unframed in excellent condition.

Born in Connecticut in 1963, David LaChapelle attended the North Carolina School of the Arts and the School of Visual Arts in New York, landing a photography job at Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine while still in high school. He has gone on to photograph celebrities for numerous popular magazines, such as Rolling Stone, Vogue, and Vanity Fair; his roster of famous subjects include Madonna, Lance Armstrong, Elizabeth Taylor, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hillary Clinton, and Muhammad Ali, as well as fellow Fine artist Jeff Koons (American, b.1955).

LaChapelle has been exhibited around the world at the Barbican Museum, London (2002), Palazzo Reale, Milan (2007), the Musee de La Monnaie, Paris (2009), the Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei, Taiwan and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel (2010).
