MAPPLETHORPE, ROBERT. Lady: Lisa Lyon, first edition, quarto, Viking, 1983, pp. 128, black matte boards, blind-stamped, duotone photos of Lisa Lyon, the bodybuilder and model, with text by Bruce Chatwin. Fine but for a price-clipped dust jacket. “Erotic work of women, like bodybuilder Lisa Lyon, straddles the line between formal beauty and sexual objectification,” says the critic Robert Hirsch in his discussion of Mapplethorpe in “Seizing the Light.” “Mapplethorpe’s flawless ordered and crafted images are built, like our own society, on conflict and contradiction.” These photos were made over two years in various locales, indoors and out.
