How Basquiat transformed his sources and brought a raw, fresh energy to the art of painting

Jean-Michel  Basquiat's (1960–88) formal vocabulary was inspired by the precedents  of Picasso, Matisse and Twombly; he drew overtly on their fondness for  primary colors, fragmented subjects, disturbing faces, dissonant colors  and forms, and crudely crafted compositions or objects. Like them, he  eschewed virtuosity and appealed instead to naivety and ungainliness, to  restore raw energy to art.

Basquiat Remix looks at the  artist's paintings alongside a range of works by Picasso, Matisse and  Twombly from the Collection Lambert in Paris, as well as from private  collections and major institutions. It celebrates his ability to mix and  recombine sources, and to balance both visceral effect and  self-awreness. The book includes an interview with Yvon Lambert in which  he recounts his relationship with the artist.
