Louisiana poster with the work, 700 Nimes Road in Beverly Hills, (2012), by the American photographer, Catherine Opie (b. 1961). This photograph of Opie became a crowd favorite from day one when Louisiana opened the 2016 exhibit, Illumination — incidentally, an exhibit that provided the largest amount of new art to the collection in the museum's history.
Actually, Catherine Opie's work is a series, consisting of 50 photographs. Opie, who has otherwise been particularly known for hes sometimes hard-boiled depictions of various subcultures, convey a both sensitive and delicate portrait of the Hollywood icon, Elizabeth Taylor's home at 700 Nimes Road in Beverly Hills.
Elizabeth Taylor died in the hospital while Opie was working on the photographs, and the series has therefore become a small, intimate monument to a bygone star, equal parts myth and ordinary human life with a mixture of glittering jewels and banal gizmos.
