(BASQUIAT, JEAN-MICHEL). Buchhart, Dieter, Glenn O'Brien, Jean-Louis Prat & Susanne Reichling. Basel, SWITZERLAND & Ostfildern, GERMANY: Fondation Beyeler & Hatje Cantz, 2010. Later Printing. 4to. Cloth in Illustrated Jacket. Artist Monograph. Fine/Fine. lii + 188pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. With a chronology. Text in English. "The first African-American artist to attain art superstardom, Jean-Michel Basquiat created a huge oeuvre of drawings and in the space of just eight years. Through his street roots in graffiti, Basquiat helped to establish new possibilities for figurative and expressionistic painting, breaking the white male stranglehold of Conceptual and Minimal art, and foreshadowing, among other tendencies, Germany's Junge Wilde movement. It was not only Basquiat's art but also the details of his biography that made his name legendary - his early years as "Samo" (his graffiti artist moniker), his friendships with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Madonna, and his tragically early death from a heroin overdose. This superbly produced retrospective publication assesses Basquiat's luminous career with commentary by, among others, Glenn O'Brien, and one hundred and sixty color reproductions of the work." This is the substantial catalogue published in conjunction with a massive 2011 Jean-Michel Basquiat retrospective exhibition held at Basel's Fondation Beyeler. A brand new, most handsome example of a later printing of the English language hardbound edition.
