About Jean Michel Basquiat Porcelain Tray – Untitled (1982) – Ligne Blanche
This Ligne Blanche Jean Michel Basquiat Porcelain Tray features a well-known painting of the notorious New York School graffiti artist: Untitled (1982). In this monumental work from 1982, Basquiat summons up a mixture of line, color, and form that results in a mighty, mythical figure that is, in equal parts, classical anti-hero, king, skeleton and self-portrait. Untitled represents a self-made victor as well as a victim, a figure who manages to triumph in a world where the odds are firmly stacked against him. This life-size painting, meticulously rendered with abundant layers of painterly gestures, exemplifies Basquiat’s unique style in which he conjures up a repertoire of energetic gestures, daubs, drips, scrapes, and scratches into one unrivaled creation. As Rene Ricard quotes in his work the Radiant Child with reference to the figure wearing Basquiat’s iconic crown, “The crown sits securely on the head of Jean-Michel’s repertory so that it is of no importance where he got it bought it stole it; it is his. He won that crown.” Produced by the Limoges-Based company Ligne Blanche, this Jean Michel Basquiat Porcelain tray features the signature “Porcelain de Limoges” attesting to its high-quality standards.
