All Robert Mapplethorpe prints in existence are vintage prints that were printed during the artist's lifetime under his supervision. No posthumous prints exist of the artist’s work. All Mapplethorpe prints, whether they are signed by the artist or by the Estate, have the images' MAP numbers, titles, dates and edition numbers on the back of the prints. The value of Mapplethorpe prints is based on the image and the availability of prints within each edition, not on whether they are signed by Mapplethorpe or the Estate.
