About Oedipus Schmedipus
"Oedipus Schmedipus," printed on a T-shirt, is also about a psychiatrist. Prince has no qualms about appropriating others' jokes in his art, understanding that it is in the nature of a joke to be shared.Read Less
About the Artist
About Richard Prince
Prince has worked in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, film, video, and photography, but he is also a writer of poetry and fiction. Some of his most famous works are his Nurse Paintings, inspired by pulp romance novels, one of which was featured on the Sonic Youth album Sonic Nurse, and which influenced Marc Jacobs's Spring 2008 collection for Louis Vuitton.
An avid collector of art, books, manuscripts, and odd objects like cancelled checks from celebrities, Prince has become the chronicler of a generation. On collecting, he says, "I don't see any difference now between what I collect and what I make. It's become the same. What I'm collecting will, a lot of times, end up in my work." A major retrospective, Richard Prince: Spiritual America, was mounted in 2007 by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.Read Less
