About Jean-Michel Basquiat Plate Glenn (1984) – Porcelain – Ligne Blanche
This Ligne Blanche Jean-Michel Basquiat Plate Glenn features a well-known painting of the graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat: Glenn (1984). This painting most probably represents a portrait of Glenn O’Brien an East Village art and culture journalist Basquiat knew. Basquiat’s portrait of Glenn doesn’t resemble O’Brien at all, instead, it consists of a large mask featuring a black head with wide open mouth and black and white teeth. The mask is surrounded by dozens of papers arranged in a collage. Many of the surrounded notepad pages have similar masks like visages. It occupies the central part of the Basquiat tray Glenn. Produced by the Limoges-Based company Ligne Blanche, this Basquiat Plate Glenn features the signature “Porcelaine de Limoges” attesting to its high-quality standards.

About Jean-Michel Basquiat
Basquiat got noticed by his paintings even though he was originally a graffiti artist. In fact, it was his so inspired painting style that really got him noticed. The appreciation of his art doesn’t spring from a high drawing technique but more from the words, the phrases, the glyphs and the symbols he always used. What is so special about Basquiat figurative painting is that you can also read it. Basquiat’s painting style was rough and fresh and very emotional but he really had an understanding of our history.
