Richard Prince created the art practice of 'appropriation'. Regarded as one of the main players/actors of The Picture Generation he took pictures of pictures and declared them artworks of their own. With motorbike cowboys and vinyl nurses as subject, Prince plays with stereotypes and superstages them as cult of popular mainstream culture. And when cliché and sexism collide, Gianni and Donatella are not afar.
