Manner of Jean Michele Basquiat (American, 1960-1988): Untitled Drawing, Crayon and pastel on paper, signed with initials lower right and full name on reverse, unframed. Also, on reverse is a stamp from Cooper's International Auction and additional inscriptions. A certificate of Authenticity from Gallery 64, Belfast, Ireland, accompanies this work.
Basquiat was on the forefront of the Neo-Expressionist Movement, which was characterized by intense subjectivity of feeling and aggressively raw handling of materials. Despite his work's 'unstudied' appearance, Basquiat very skillfully and purposefully brought together in his art a host of disparate traditions, practices, and styles to create a unique kind of visual collage.
