Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) “Self Portrait as a Heel” - This reproduction is a limited edition (1/150) lithograph with a printed signature and moniker of Basquiat in the margin. It is based on the original 72 by 84-inch acrylic and oil stick on canvas that was created by the artist in 1982. The unframed sheet measures approximately 20.5 x14.5 inches. This work of art utilizes recurrent themes In Basquiat’s unique style: heads, figures, words and symbols to depict the figure of a man with an African mask-like face (himself), with dreadlocked hair flowing in the wind, exposed teeth and flared nostrils. Does the title refer to a contemptible person (heel) or a tribal “heal”-er?
