New art exhibitions for autumn
Two artists whose careers were as brilliant and bold as they were tragically short are the focus of parallel exhibitions newly opened at Paris’ Fondation Louis Vuit ton. The gallery has brought together the worlds of restless1980s New York and avant-garde 1910s Vienna, through the paintings and drawings of JeanMichel Basquiat and Egon Schiele. There is lit tle immediately to connect an Austrian Expressionist with a New Yorker of Haitian–Puerto Rican heritage whose career began in graffiti. But in addition to their early deaths (aged 27 and 28), both produced works that shocked and captivated, and continue to stand as icons of their time (3 October 2018–14 January 2019; tickets £15; fondationlouisvuitton.fr).
