Warhol-Basquiat - Collaborations

£120.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This catalogue was produced to accompany an exhibition of works by two well-known artists whose friendship was a strange marriage of opposite personalities.  Warhol, shy and quiet, could hardly have been expected to take to Basquiat, who was an aggressive and 'in your face' young man - but there is no accounting for taste, and the two became firm friends and collaborators for as long as Basquiat lived.  

Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) was an American political artist of Haitian and Puerto Rican descent, who first achieved fame as half of SAMO, an informal graffiti duo writing enigmatic epigrams in the cultural hotbed of the Lower East Side of Manhattan during the late 1970s.  By the 1980s, his neo-expressionist paintings were being exhibited in galleries and museums internationally. The Whitney Museum of American Art held a retrospective of his art in 1992.  His

Basquiat's art focused on dichotomies such as wealth v. poverty, integration v. segregation, and inner v. outer experience, marrying together text and image, abstraction, figuration, and historical information mixed with contemporary critique.  His visual poetics were acutely political and direct in their criticism of colonialism and support for class struggle. He died of a heroin overdose at his art studio at the age of 27.

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) was an American artist, director, and producer, and a leading figure in the pop art movement. His works span a variety of media, including painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture. Some of his best known works include the silkscreen paintings 'Campbell's Soup Cans' (1962) and 'Marilyn Diptych' (1962), the experimental film 'Chelsea Girls' (1966), and the multimedia events known as the 'Exploding Plastic Inevitable' (1966-67)

Our copy is in very nice general condition, its white covers only lightly worn (a few marks on the front, and some rubbing to the spine angles).  Inside, pages are clean and bright;  text in French and English;  13 full-page colour illustrations including 3 fold-out pages.
