As the preeminent American artist of the 20th Century, Andy Warhol challenged the world to see art differently. This product is produced under a license from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc., a New York not-for-profit corporation which promotes the visual arts.
A key figure in New York's East Village scene in the late 1970s and 80s, American artist Keith Haring's artwork populated not only art galleries, but also the city's subways, streets, and sidewalks. His work often combined an iconographic vocabulary, including hearts, flying saucers, winged figures, and a crawling "radiant baby," with abstract marks and patterning.
An icon of New York in the 1980s, Jean-Michel Basquiat became renowned during his short career for works inspired by his early street art and distinctive iconography often connected to art history. His paintings, drawings, and prints drew on a diverse range of sources, from African, Aztec, and Greek cultures to Americana in the form of jazz, baseball, and social and political events.
