Jean-Michel Basquiat was only twenty-seven when he died in 1988, his meteoric and often controversial career having lasted for just eight years. Despite his early death, Basquiat's powerful œuvre has ensured his continuing reputation as one of modern art's most distinctive voices. 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 shrewdly observed and biting. This bestselling book, now available in a compact edition, celebrates Basquiat's achievements in the contexts of the key influences on his art. It not only re-evaluates the artist's principal works and their meaning, but also explains what keeps his painting relevant today.
Each essay provides the reader with a different viewpoint on the man and his work, providing a critical insight for anyone who has an interest in Basquiat and the art world at the time he came to prominence in the 80's. -- "Magik City"

"Basquiat's painting "The Philistines," (sic) is included in the exhibition "Expressive Painting after Picasso," Fondation (sic) Beyeler, Basel, Switzerland. He is shown alongside artists such as Joan Miro, Jean Dubuffet, Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock. Basquiat's work appears on the cover of the exhibition catalogue."
From "Basquiat: Boom For Real," (2017), Edited by Dieter Buchhart and Eleanor Nairne, with Lotte Johnson, page 274. If you want get the artwork and some background information about Basquiat, his life and times, buy "Basquiat: Boom For Real," which is available at Amazon for $37.42, shipped.
Jean-Michel Basquiat, (BASS-KI-OTT) or (BASS-KI-AH), born 12/22/60, Brooklyn, New York, died 8/12/88 (27), Manhattan, N.Y.
In about 1973, (when he was 13), his mother was committed to a mental institution. Looking at JMB's works, you can see the influence of his mother ("Gray's Anatomy" book she gave him in the hospital after he was hit by a car at age seven), and I believe her difficulties deeply affected him.
I was very excited about see more pictures about this young artist who died so soon.
The book was in perfect conditions, and I enjoy it a lot.
I bought another book of basquiat from Taschen ed. but is not as good as this one. It has less pictures and less interesting paintings.
I strongly recommend this book. In order to make a small complaint I'd love to have seen more pictures of the paintings made in collaboration with Andy Warhol.
Thank you very much.
This book should be re-called and the photos re-done. It's that bad. The Marshall book, which another reviewer praises, is vastly superior to this book, with the exception of one painting "Notary," which is better repro'd in this book. A few essays and several new works make the book acceptable, barely, for a collector, but even the art-auction catalogues issued by Sotheby's, Christies, Phillips, etc. have superior reproductions of JMB's work. This edition is truly a mockery of a professional art book. I suggest getting the Marshall book, or nearly any of the other books on JMB, esp. those from Germany or France, some of which appear on Ebay as well.
