Swiss publication by the art dealer Bruno Bishofberger. Undated, unpaginated. JEAN MICHEL BASQUIAT book PORTRAITS 45 PLATES. The book contains Basquiat’s portaits on ceramic plates that were made between 1983 and 1984 and were at that time the property of Andy Warhol. Text by Francesco Clemente, who features on one of the plates reproduced in the book.

The plates each feature Basquiat’s trademark expressionist drawings and offer a fascinating insight into his influences, sometimes apparently eclectic, sometimes reflective of Basquiat’s regard for popular culture, other times studiously referential to the major canons of Western art history. Examples of plates as follows: “Michealangelo”, “Cezanne”. “Picasso”, “Henri Matisse”, “Man Ray”, “Sal Dali”, “de Kooning”, “Robert Rauchenberg”, “Jasper Johns”, “Cy Twombly”, “Frank Stella” and so on
