"The New York Times Sunday Book Review""Reseña del editor:
Born in Brooklyn to a Haitian father and Puerto-Rican mother, Jean-Michel Basquiat was deeply interested in Afro-Atlantic culture and he drew upon his heritage in many of his highly acclaimed paintings. This book looks closely --- for the first time --- at Basquiat's southern-themed paintings. The paintings in this book are filled with references to the history and culture of the South, a place the artist visited sparingly. Insightful essays discuss the importance of Basquiat's work in relation to a subject that occupied his attention throughout his career. Published in association with Prospect New Orleans.
