Hoffman, Fred. JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT: Drawing: Work from the Schorr Family Collection. 196 pages, including 80 color plates. 4to, cloth. New York, Rizzoli in conjunction with the Acquavella Gallery, 2014.
Herbert and Lenore Schorr began collecting the work of Basquiat in 1981, before his first New York exhibition. Between 1982 and 1983, the Schorrs acquired several of his most important paintings, and they acquired a great number of works on paper both directly from the artist and from his first dealer. Former gallery owner and noted author Fred Hoffman offers a succinct survey of Basquiat's works on paper, placing the collection into the context of his work and working practice. Parts of this text will appear in the author's forthcoming monograph, The Art of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
