    Born in Brooklyn in 1960, Jean-Michel Basquiat was only twenty-seven when he died, his meteoric and often controversial career having lasted for just eight dazzling years. Despite his early death, Basquiat's large and potent oeuvre hasensured his continuing reputation as one of modern art's most distinctive and vibrant visions. Borrowing from graffiti and street imagery, cartoons, mythology, and religious symbolism, Basquiat's drawings and paintings explore issues of race and identity, providing social commentary that is keenly observant and to-the-quick. This volume examines and celebrates the achievements of this all-to-brief shining light. Addenda; Index of Illustrations. In color. 224p.

    The first book on the drawings and works on paper of this legendary cult artist. Published on the occasion of an exhibition of the same name, Jean-Michel Basquiat Drawing is the first book on the Schorr Collection of Basquiat’s works on paper. Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988) was barely out of his teens when he rocketed to the center of New York’s art scene; he was 27 when he died of a heroin overdose. A friend of Keith Haring and Andy Warhol, and always controversial, Basquiat is now established as a major contemporary painter whose unique work continues to enthrall. Herbert and Lenore Schorr began collecting the work of Basquiat in 1981, before his first New York exhibition. During the artist’s seminal years of 1982–83, the Schorrs acquired several of his most important paintings, but in contrast to virtually every other early collector, the Schorrs also pursued and acquired a great number of works on paper both directly from the artist and from his first dealer. Their collection demonstrates the focus and ambition that the artist invested in the medium of drawing.

    The American painter and draftsman Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) ranks among the most compelling personalities of recent art history. A self-taught artist from the New York underground, he at first made a living by selling painted T-shirts and xeroxed collage postcards in downtown Manhattan. Having won some acclaim for his graffiti, Basquiat began exhibiting paintings and drawings as early as 1980. Two years later, aged just 21, he became a participant in Documenta. His friendships with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Madonna are likewise legendary. Basquiat's powerful compositions combine the mundane and the magic of his African roots. His works evince the same intensity, the same energy as did his own tragically brief life. In the course of his eight-year-long flameout, he not only succeeded in creating a wide-ranging oeuvre of his own, but he also added some new figurative and expressive elements to the Conceptual and Minimal Art repertoire. Published in honor of the 50th anniversary of the artist's birth. Illus., 334 in color. 244p.

    Brooklyn-born Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-88) was one of the most important artists of the 1980s. A key figure in the New York art scene, he inventively explored the interplay between words and images throughout his career, first as a member of SAMO, a graffiti group active on the Lower East Side in the late 1970s, and then as a painter acclaimed for his unmistakable Neoexpressionist style. From 1980 to 1987, he filled numerous working notebooks with drawings and handwritten texts. This facsimile edition reproduces the pages of seven of these fascinating and rarely seen notebooks for the first time.The notebooks are filled with images and words that recur in Basquiat's paintings and other works. Iconic drawings and pictograms of crowns, teepees, and hatch-marked hearts share space with handwritten texts, including notes, observations, and poems that often touch on culture, race, class, and life in New York. Like his other work, the notebooks vividly demonstrate Basquiat's deep interests in comic, street, and pop art, hip-hop, politics, and the ephemera of urban life. They also provide an intimate look at the working process of one of the most creative forces in contemporary American art.
