Jean-Michel Basquiat Drawings

FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT.

Signed by Basquiat and numbered (“281/1000”) in blue ink on the verso of title page, facing a magnificent photograph of Basquiat taken in 1982 by James van der Zee. Illustrated with 32 colored plates and beautiful color dust jacket.

The illustrations are of drawings created in New York and during travels abroad during the winter of 1982/83.

Although the book is numbered as one of 1000 copies, it is extremely rare on the market and it is generally understood that a number much smaller than 1000 were produced and signed by Basquiat.

Housed in a spectacular box by book artist Sjoerd Hofstra, which reproduces Basquiat's "Ascent" on the front cover.

Zurich: Edition Gallery Bruno Bischofberger; New York: Mary Boone Gallery; 1985. Oblong quarto (14x10.5 in), original cloth, original dust jacket. A FINE COPY. RARE.

Price: $9,500 .
