Jean-Michel Basquiat Drawing: Work from the Schorr Family Collection

(No reviews yet)

Out of stock

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.
