I watched him make his first million. We went from stealing bread on the way home from the Mudd Club and eating pasta to buying groceries at Dean & DeLuca; the fridge was full of pastries and caviar, we were drinking Cristal champagne. We were 21 years old.” More details on Jean-Michel Basquiat Self Portrait with Suzanne (1982) – Porcelain Plate:
