Price on Request
Intended limited-edition of a couple hundred, far less actually realized. Precious few survived... Very rare limited-edition of an intricate drawing by Basquiat utilizing both words and images. Attractively designed and printed in black, blue, and red on textured brownish stock. Created as a VIP invitation to the birthday celebration for Basquiat and Eric Goode, founder of the club "Area" in NYC in the 1980s. Area was one of the most popular clubs on the Downtown scene, often frequented by Basquiat and Warhol during the period when they socialized together. Basquiat later displayed some of his work there and occasionally served as a guest DJ. It was at Area that Basquiat met Eric's sister, Jennifer Goode, who became one of the most important relationships in his life.
A superb and mint impression - among the most difficult Basquiat items to find.
