Sketch of Keith Haring, 1983 poster by Jean-Michel Basquiat (printed on watercolour paper)

£40.00

A wonderful portrait of one artist by another, from a very particular moment in the history of Western art.

For his Sketch of Keith Haring Basquiat adopted a feature of traditional Renaissance portraiture where personal objects were included to help provide information about the sitter. Basquiat depicted Haring wearing a T-shirt adorned with one of the most recognisable images from his artwork, the radiant baby, and incorporated the word 'famous' in a halo like sphere above Haring's head establishing his status. 

Approximate dimensions: paper size is 60 x 46 cm, image area is  48 × 34 cm and comes with a 5 cm border containing the artist name and print title near the bottom edge of the paper
