JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT. Richard Marshall et al. Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 1992. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 272 pp. with 302 ills. (151 col.). 32 x 25 cm. LC 92-19045 ISBN 0810968142 In English.
Provides an extensive reassessment of the brief but prolific career of Hispanic African American artist Basquiat (1960-1988), a celebrated figure in the New York art world of the 1980s whose paintings, mixed-media compositions, assemblages and works on paper explore themes of urban life, racism and mortality through expressively rendered figures and graffiti-like symbols and texts. Excellent reproductions of some 150 works are accompanied by six essays examining the sources and development of Basquiat's artistic strategies, the cultural context of his life and career, and the personal and socio-political issues central to his work.
