Andy Warhol’s Jean-Michel Basquiat Will Debut at the Next Christie’s Auction

Andy Warhol’s Jean-Michel Basquiat

Jean-Michel Basquiat will debut at the next Christie’s auction. The event will take place in New York during the 21st-Century Art Evening Sale. The price for Andy Warhol’s work of art is estimated at 20 million dollars. The portrait, painted in 1982 on orange canvas, features black ink and silver spots due to the silkscreening method.

The famous pop art artist created the portrait when he was 22 years old. At that period, the creator had already earned global fame. The portrait of Basquiat is one of those artworks which the artist made with the help of the oxidation process. Basquiat image marks a new generation, and Warhol’s ability to capture the celebrity and his fame perfectly finishes the portrait. This method had been discovered by Warhol in the late 70s. The artist also experimented with urinating on copper-painted canvases. In such a way, he managed to create an unusual staining ornament.

The portrait’s current owner is a magazine publisher who acquired the piece 20 years ago in one of the New York galleries. Then, Peter Brant had lent the painting to travel on tour.

You will be able to see the painting in Hong Kong starting from October 7 to October 10. Then, the work of art will go to New York and will be put on sale in November.
