This is the most up-to-date edition of the Jean-Michel Basquiat catalogue raisonné of paintings. Released in 2010 with an all-important and previously unissued appendix, the three-volume set is offered in its original slipcase.
The appendix gathers updates including a substantial number of new works, documentation of films about and featuring Basquiat, and installation images from his 2010 exhibition at Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, Switzerland. The catalogue raisonné features an introduction by Enrico Navarra; texts by Johnny Depp, Richard D. Marshall, and Jean-Louis Prat; an essay by Achille Bonito Oliva; and engaging remembrances by Diego Cortez, Annina Nosei, Glenn O’Brien, and others. Bruno Bischofberger contributes a reflection on his experiences facilitating Basquiat’s collaborations with Francesco Clemente and Andy Warhol.
