This new work is based on a series of photographs made by visual artist and photographer Richard Prince when he went to France as a student in the late 1960s. Instead of studying humanities in Caen, he ended up going to Paris and visiting museums. This inspired further European travels to major cities and museums, as he pursued a desire to see great works of art in person. Published on the occasion of an exhibition at Le Consortium in Dijon, the images reproduced here show their age, and that of Prince as well, often discoloured by exposure or time, poorly lit, or framed in the clichéd manner of a young, wide-eyed tourist a window into the artists formative period.
