Signature Jean-Michel Basquiat can be found in the lower margin of the painting and verso. This artwork is also marked on reverse by a previous collection mark (reference number in pencil and stamp). The work is in very good condition for its age, colors create the desired contrast, are vivid and are well preserved, but we also notice minor yellowing of the paper. Basquiat's work mixed together many different styles and techniques.His paintings often included words and text, his graffiti was expressive and often abstract, and his logos and iconography had a deep historical resonance. Despite his work's "unstudied" appearance, he very skillfully and purposefully brought together a host of disparate traditions, practices, and styles to create his signature visual collage. With this work comes a Certificate of authenticity, registration of the painting at Fine Arts Registry and a transfer of ownership.
The artwork was acquired in estate liquidation sale in France. For more details and condition of the artwork please view the images.Jean-Michel Basquiat moved from graffiti artist to downtown punk scenester to celebrity art star in only the few short years of his career. This vertiginous rise took him from sleeping on the streets of New York City to being befriended by Andy Warhol and entering into the elite American art world as one of the most celebrated painters of the Neo-Expressionism art movement.
