    J attendais beaucoup de cet ouvrage au vu de son titreProbablement trop En dehors du texte de Fred Hoffman qui est vraiment int ressant, et de la qualit des reproduction, c est une d ception Beaucoup de redites et de remplissage pour faire croire une sorte de somme de l oeuvre dessin e, ce qui n est pas le cas.Certains dessins sont reproduits inutilement 2 fois en pleine page sans compter des extraits des m mes dessins qui n apportent rien vu la dimension des pages.Tout cela donne un bouquin de plus sur Basquiat Un faux livre d art qui fait penser la grenouille voulant ressembler un boeuf.Je ne conseillerais pas cet ouvrage Il y a en d autres bien plus riches sur Basquiat Heureusement pour lui San Bartolom

    This book is the catalog for an exhibition of drawings or works on paper by Jean Michel Basquiat They were all bought by a couple who were early fans of the artist The great thing about Basquiat s drawings is that some of the works have as much color, energy and detail as his paintings but on a smaller scale Basquiat s signature motifs are all present these are a treat to see The book begins with a short biography of Basquiat and some background on the collectors This is followed by an essay about Basquiat s practice of working on paper Then there is the plates section There is a short introduction for each drawing or for certain drawings that full under a specific theme There are not a lot of drawings in the exhibition, around twenty, but it s still an enjoyable book All of the drawings are vividly reproduced on quality paper in a sturdy hardcover binding The overall presentation of the book is very nice If you are a new Basquiat fan this is not the book to start with Seek out one of his retrospective books For die hard fans this is recommended.
