Prince is a major proponent of appropriation art, deconstructing the mechanisms of representation and communication promoted by American popular culture. The three Cowboys series, selected from the Collection as part of the Fondation Louis Vuitton « Hors-les-murs » program, show the mythical figure of the cowboy turned into a complex object by the means of ‘re-photography’, expressing a feeling of nostalgia for a foundational period while highlighting its stereotype through the use of “clichés”.
