BASQUIAT, Jean-Michel. Portraits 45 Plates.

(Zurich): Edition Gallery Bruno Bischofberger, no date. (c.1996). First edition. 12mo. Unpaginated. Text by Francesco Clemente. The book contains Basquiat’’s portraits on ceramic plates that were made between 1983 and 1984 and were at that time the property of Andy Warhol. The plates each feature Basquiat’s trademark expressionist drawings and offer a fascinating insight into his influences, sometimes apparently eclectic, sometimes reflective of Basquiat’s regard for popular culture, other times studiously referential to the major canons of Western art history. A fine copy in printed wrappers with paper dust jacket. Jacket with small dink.
