We are pleased to present this special edition portrait in collaboration with Paige Powell and the Suzanne Geiss Company. This intimate shot of Jean-Michel Basquiat was taken during his stay on a ranch in Hana, Hawaii in 1984. Working in a studio set up with materials brought from New York, Basquiat had been visited that February by Paige Powell, Basquiat's sister Jeanine, his father Gerard, and Nora Fitzpatrick. More than thirty years later, the Suzanne Geiss Company presented "Jean-Michel Basquiat Reclining Nude," an unprecedented exhibition of rare, candid photographs from Powell's comprehensive archive. The show was a significant chronicle of her two-year relationship with Basquiat as well as 1980's American art and culture.
Framing option is black or white painted wood, 7/8" wide flat face and 7/8" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
