This event has ended.

Sotheby’s S|2 private sales galleries in New York presents an exhibition of works by the Brooklyn-born painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, offering a comprehensive view of his short but legendary career. From simple works on paper in marker and crayon from 1979 to monumental and highly-finished canvases from 1987, the year before his untimely death, the exhibition highlights important milestones in the artist’s oeuvre. The more than 30 works included in the show explore key themes Basquiat grappled with during his career and the variety of media he used to express them. The exhibition, which will transform Sotheby’s S|2 gallery, opens at a key moment of appreciation for both the artist’s career and market with major museum exhibitions and gallery shows presented and record prices achieved in recent years. This private selling exhibition will coincide with Sotheby’s Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary exhibitions, which open on 3 May 2013.
