Works by Artist Basquiat to Appear at NYC Exhibit


More than 30 works by artist Jean-Michel Basquiat will appear at a New York City exhibit before a private sale.

The exhibit at Sotheby's galleries runs May 2 through June 9. Most will be available for sale.

They include works on paper in marker and crayon from 1979 and monumental canvases from 1987.

The Brooklyn-born Basquiat was 27 when he died of a drug overdose in 1988.

Among the highlights is “Punch Bag” from 1983 depicting a Black boxer. It’s been owned by a European collector since the late 1990s.

Colorful canvas “Love Dub for A” from 1987 has been offered for sale only once before.

The auction record for a Basquiat is "Untitled," a painting of a Black fisherman that sold for $26.4 million in November.
