On May 13th, Christie’s Evening Auction of Post-War & Contemporary Art will present a major painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat, created in the seminal year of 1981 and carefully preserved in the same private collection since it was acquired to Annina Nosei in 1982.
Untitled is estimated to realize in the region of $20-30 million. The year 1981 marked Jean-Michel Basquiat’s transcendence from the leading figure on the underground art scene, SAMO, to the established world of international art stardom. Via Art Daily
