in 2018 the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, hosted exhibitions on two of the greatest artists of the 20th century - Egon Scvhiele, and Jean Michel Basquiat. Both exhibitions had the same curator, and took place at the same time. The shows illustrated exactly what it is that linked the two artists: line, and the use of expressive force.

This, the catalog of the Basquiat exhibition, labeled "the definitive exhibition" by its curator, brings together 120 of the artists' most important masterpieces, sourced from international museums and private collections. With the astonishing radicalness of his artistic practice, Basquiat renewed the concept of art with enduring impact. This Basquiat retrospective centers on the idea of Basquiat's unique energetic line, his use of words, symbols, and how he integrates collage in his paintings, sculptures, objects and large-scale drawings.

The catalog includes texts by great authors, including Paul Schimmel who tells of his meeting with Basquiat in California; Francesco Pellizzi who knew Basquiat well and has not written about him for a long time; and Okwui Enwezor who talks about the Afro American identity.
