BASQUIAT, Jean-Michel. Jean-Michel Basquiat.

(Paris): Galerie Enrico Navarra, 2000 / 2010. The third edition. Quarto. Three volumes. 376, 312 and 64 pages. This is the most up-to-date edition of the Jean-Michel Basquiat catalogue raisonné of paintings. This edition including the all-important and previously unissued appendix. The appendix gathers updates including a substantial number of new works, documentation of films about and featuring Basquiat, and installation images from his 2010 exhibition at Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, Switzerland. The catalogue raisonné features an introduction by Enrico Navarra; texts by Johnny Depp, Richard D. Marshall, and Jean-Louis Prat; an essay by Achille Bonito Oliva; and engaging remembrances by Diego Cortez, Annina Nosei, Glenn O’Brien, and others. Bruno Bischofberger contributes a reflection on his experiences facilitating Basquiat’s collaborations with Francesco Clemente and Andy Warhol. The volumes are illustrated throughout. All volumes in at least very good condition housed in publisher’s glossy slipcase.  Slipcase with some wear and splitting as usual the books being to heavy. This edition has now become quite scarce.
