About Limoges Porcelain Small Plate – Jean-Michel Basquiat King Alphonso (1983)
This Limoges porcelain plate is based on the New York School graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work “King Alphonso” artwork made in 1983. The original painting is an acrylic and charcoal on paper created for Basquiat’s series The Daros Suite“. The artwork gathers many of the most familiar symbols generally found in Basquiat’s masterpieces: The famous three-pointed crown, an enigmatic text, and the predominance of King Alphonso’s head and name over the other elements in the frame. Much of the anatomical imagery and diagram-like composition of the artist paintings, drawings, and prints are derived from Basquiat’s childhood. At that time, the young boy had a huge interest in the medical textbook Gray’s Anatomy. This top quality porcelain small plate features a painting by one of the most revolutionary underground New Yorker artists of the 1980s. The patterns illustrated in the original painting (colorful, powerful figures in comic-grotesque, conceptual words, creatures, as well as voodoo) are typical of the wild and original world of the artist.
