Item description for Richard Prince by Ingvild Goetz Jan Seewald...
A private collection functions less in accordance with art historical necessities than with the taste and preferences of the collector. The Goetz Collection in Munich, which includes more than 50 works by Richard Prince, is no exception. Nevertheless, Ingvild Goetz's particular point of view encompasses all aspects of Prince's oeuvre, from his photographs of the late 80s through the evolution of his painterly style; more than two decades of work--culminating in Prince's latest nurse paintings--are documented and discussed here. Created in close collaboration with the artist, this publication reveals a critical review of the works in question, contextualizing them anew with current political, social, and cultural references. Accompanying essays give a European understanding of the very American issues Prince deals in: the Wild West, cowboys, celebrities, biker culture, and jokes.

Reviews - What do customers think about Richard Prince?
A princely catalogue Oct 18, 2007
Since I will not be lucky enough to see the exhibition at the Guggenheim, I am very happy to be able to say that this is one of the best art books I have ordered so far. It lists and illustrates the bulk of Prince's major series (the original ad pictures from the 1970's, stripped of all text, the cowboy photos,the joke paintings, the nurse paintings,the latest 2006 "De Kooning" paintings which are a complete discovery, and many more). The illustrations are wonderful and do justice to the scope and depth of the artist's oeuvre.
The book starts with an enlightening essay by curator Nancy Spector who shows how Prince's appropriation art resulted in one of the most profound analyses of contemporary American culture. Another valuable chapter of the book is a collection of interviews of various personalities (collectors, intellectuals, magazine editors, writers, cartoonists...)who have been in some way or other in contact with Richard Prince and his works and who give their own often sensible and knowledgeable opinion on it.
Cool guy, interesting work. Aug 18, 2007
The book is pretty decent but pricey. Multiple languages are a pain in the neck.
