Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART ROUNDUP -

An ex­hi­bi­tion of Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988), one of the most sig­nif­i­cant pain­ters of the 20th cen­tury, will cover the painter’s whole ca­reer, from 1980 to 1988, fo­cus­ing on 120 defin­ing works. At the same time, there will be a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion of the Aus­trian painter Egon Schiele (1890-1918). Com­posed of around 80 draw­ings, wa­ter­colours and paint­ings, this solo show of his work is a first in Paris for 25 years.

Both pain­ters died aged 28 and in un­der a decade be­came ma­jor fig­ures in the art of their cen­tury. They are linked by their destiny and their for­tune, that of a short-lived body of work, the im­pact and per­ma­nency of which have few equals.

Jean-Michel Basquiat. Grillo, 1984 Egon Schiele. Self-Por­trait, Head, 1910.
