Richard Prince, Page Spread from his Artist Book, “Bettie Kline”, (2009)
The renowned photographer of S&M “girlie pics” Irving Klaw, had a studio at 212 East 14th Street in New York City, In the same building lived abstract expressionist painter Franz Kline. Kline used some of Klaw’s models for figure studies, and was especially smitten with the most renowned of the Klaw roster, Bettie Page.
Prince reproduces Kine’s abstract pen and ink drawings on one page with Klaws photographs of Bettie opposite, pairing the images according to formal similarities. The tense lines of Page are responded to by Kline with dynamic brushes swatches of brushed ink, suggesting a different and unexpected source from the Chinese calligraphy that was historically thought to be his inspiration.
