Présentation de l'éditeur

Jean-Michel Basquiat was only twenty-seven when he died in 1988, his meteoric and often controversial career having lasted for just eight years. Despite his early death, Basquiat's powerful oeuvre has ensured his continuing reputation as one of modern art's most distinctive voices. Borrowing from graffiti and street imagery, cartoons, mythology and religious symbolism, Basquiat's drawings and paintings explore issues of race and identity, providing social commentary that is shrewdly observed and biting. This bestselling book, now available in a compact edition, celebrates Basquiat's achievements in the contexts of the key influences on his art. It not only re-evaluates the ar tist s principal works and their meaning, but also explains what keeps his painting relevant today. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

HASH(0x984a2cc0) étoiles sur 5 Better Basquiat catalogs available 28 juillet 2005
Par J. Lowe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I own over 40 Basquiat catalogs and recently attended the current show a LA MOCA. This catalog is merely mediocre. For starters, many of the pictures of the works do not adequately render the colors with the appropriate intensity. As an example, the pink in "Arroz con Pollo" is a shown with a darker, reddish tint to it whereas in the actual painting the pink is very vivid, almost neon bright. Most of the photos are ones that have been previously published in numerous other books and catalogs. The 4 essays from Marc Meyer, Franklin Sirmans, Fred Hoffman, and Kellie Jones are good but not great. Overall, it's a competent catalog. Not bad but certainly not great.

If you can only afford (or have room for) just one Basquiat catalog you're MUCH better off getting the book produced by the Tony Shafrazi Gallery in 1999. It features more works, better reproductions and essays Shafrazi, Glenn O'Brien, Peter Brant, Keith Haring, and Henry Geldzahler (to name a few) Yes, it costs more than this catalog but it's well worth it.

HASH(0x984a2e10) étoiles sur 5 An Unpardonable, Amatuerish Slop-Bucket 13 août 2005
Par Jason Lynn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I invite all professional photographers to comment on the level of "expertise" of the repros issued in this book. Several of the photos are out of focus--as in JMB's "Undiscovered Genius.." There is never any excuse, no matter how wide or tall the painting (some are 10 or more feet), for any work to be out-of focus. Other paintings have their original color so distorted or leeched that these repros are criminally inept.

This book should be re-called and the photos re-done. It's that bad. The Marshall book, which another reviewer praises, is vastly superior to this book, with the exception of one painting "Notary," which is better repro'd in this book. A few essays and several new works make the book acceptable, barely, for a collector, but even the art-auction catalogues issued by Sotheby's, Christies, Phillips, etc. have superior reproductions of JMB's work. This edition is truly a mockery of a professional art book. I suggest getting the Marshall book, or nearly any of the other books on JMB, esp. those from Germany or France, some of which appear on Ebay as well.

HASH(0x984a2d80) étoiles sur 5 Jean-Michel Basquiat and the Rise of Multiculturalism 25 juillet 2005
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
After spending an afternoon strolling the huge exhibition of the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat currently at MOCA in Los Angeles, the visual indulgence becomes repetitive and exhausting. Yes, the works are curated well, the museum spaces the installation artistically, and the access to the spectrum of Basquiat's output (including collaborative works with Andy Warhol and Francesco Clemente) is thorough. But it is a bit of visual overkill to monopolize a museum with works that are so similar that the original graffiti punch that initiated the brief career of this artist is lost.

This highly professional catalogue (monograph) that accompanies the exhibition is a book that should be read BEFORE visiting the museum. The writing is excellent, much attention is paid to the time into which Basquiat emerged, the sociological importance of placing a graffiti artist's works in private galleries and in museums, and indeed the visual manifestation of the Hip Hop movement that Basquiat's works on paper and canvas represent prepares us for a show that subsequently becomes far more important. Quite a change from the usual 'catalogue as souvenir' concept so traditional in museums and galleries. This book stands alone as an art work: the reproductions are generous and well color-keyed, the essays are first rate, and the documentation of the works by Basquiat is in essence a Catalogue raisonné.

So whether or not you have access to this traveling exhibition should not influence whether you add this important book to your library. It simply is that fine! Grady Harp, July 05

HASH(0x984a2c78) étoiles sur 5 Basquiat Retrospective: Take 2 25 mars 2005
Par Buffy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The images in this book almost mirror the images shown in the 1st Basquiat retrospective book from the Whitney Museum (edited by Richard Marshall). If you own the Whitney book, there's no need to pick up this one because you'll be looking at a lot of duplicate images. If you don't own a Basquiat book, you can't really go wrong with either edition and I would lean towards the newer book. But there's no need to own both of them. So why the low rating? It's a shame that the curators didn't take the opportunity to add something new for Basquiat fans. Many years have passed since the 1st Whitney retrospective and we're basically presented with a book that repeats what's already been printed. Unfortunately we'll have to wait for someone else to put out a book of new Basquiat material for us to see.

HASH(0x9de8612c) étoiles sur 5 Warning: Be Careful of Which Version You Buy 10 février 2010
Par W. Rosen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This 2010 paperback reprint edition is small! Check the measurements, it's about 7" x 8.5" which is tiny for an art book. I was surprised to see this book in the store because it looked tiny compared the the other art books around it. Not good if you want to look at Basquiat's art.

You are much better off buying the original 2005 hardcover edition of this book with it's larger page size of 9.8" x 11.7" which I own. Amazon also advertises a 2006 paperback version of this book at a slightly smaller 9.4" x 11.4" size which I have not seen in person.

Out of the three versions available, this 2010 is the least attractive and definitely not recommended.
