Basquiat: Rage to Riches 9pm, BBC2

The Guardian - The Guide - - Television -

In May this year, one of JeanMichel Basquiat’s Skull paint­ings sold at auc­tion for $110.5m, a record for any post-1980 art­work. It was a re­minder of the en­dur­ing ap­peal of Basquiat’s fu­ri­ous, lurid paint­ings, nearly three decades on from his death from an over­dose, aged 27. This doc­u­men­tary pon­ders the res­o­nance of Basquiat’s work, fea­tur­ing the first tele­vi­sion in­ter­views with his sis­ters, among other friends and as­so­ci­ates.
