SCHNABEL, Julian. Basquiat.

(No place): Miramax Films, 1997.  First edition.  Quarto.  12 page cinematic brochure for the Julian Schnabel directed  biographical drama film based on the life of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.  Jeffrey Wright portrays Basquiat, and David Bowie plays Basquiat’s friend and mentor Andy Warhol. Additional cast members include Gary Oldman as a thinly disguised Schnabel, Michael Wincott as the poet and art critic Rene Ricard, Dennis Hopper as Bruno Bischofberger, Parker Posey as gallery owner Mary Boone, Christopher Walken as a villainous journalist, and Claire Forlani, Courtney Love, Tatum O’Neal, and Benicio del Toro in supporting roles as “composite characters”. A very good example.
