An exploration of the personal and artistic connections between two icons of twentieth-century art

Keith Haring (1958-1990) and Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) changed the art world of the 1980s through their idiosyncratic imagery, radical ideas, and complex sociopolitical commentary. Each artist invented a distinct visual language, employing signs, symbols, and words to convey strong messages in unconventional ways, and each left an indelible legacy that remains a force in contemporary visual and popular culture. Offering fascinating new insights into the artists' work, Keith Haring Jean-Michel Basquiat reveals the many intersections among Haring and Basquiat's lives, ideas, and practices.

This lavishly illustrated volume brings together more than two hundred images--works created in public spaces, paintings, sculptures, objects, works on paper, photographs, and more. These rich visuals are accompanied by essays and interviews from renowned scholars, artists, and art critics, exploring the reach and range of Haring and Basquiat's influence.

Keith Haring Jean-Michel Basquiat provides a valuable look at two artistic peers and boundary breakers whose tragically short but prolific careers left their marks on the art world and beyond.
