Baseball - Jean-Michel Basquiat - Neo Expressionist Painting - Canvas Prints

Jean-Michel Basquiat’s prolific paintings of African American athletes and cultural heroes are among the most personally and politically charged works in his ephemeral yet
vast oeuvre. In the figure of Jackie Robinson, Basquiat recognized a resilient hero and a captivating icon of self-made success. Robinson was an athletic champion who
managed to triumph against all odds in the form of deep-rooted racial prejudices of the 1950s. This was a heroic figure that Basquiat truly identified with, growing up as a young man of Haitian and Puerto Rican heritage with incomparable artistic talent, challenging the predominantly white world of the competitive art scene. The present lot, Baseball, 1981, is one of Basquiat’s first images of the famed ball player, and one that predates most of his “famous negro athletes”; it is also a metaphorical self-portrait of Basquiat as a defiant competitor of his day.
