Art of the Day – 6/20/13 (Skull, Jean-Michel Basquiat)

Daily Artwork — “Skull, Jean-Michel Basquiat, 1981”

Use the images posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of an artwork critique.

1981 — Skull. Acrylic and crayon on canvas. Neo Expressionism style. Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960 – 1988).  The Broad Art Collection, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

In this painting, Basquiat presents us with a face in the shape of a skull. Although complete with eyes, a nose, and teeth, the painting gives us the illusion that the face is incomplete, and the bones from underneath the surface are coming through just as plainly as the colors in the background. The head is filled with Basquiat’s illusory graffiti, giving the impression there are forms and figures within the face, but upon closer inspection, the face is a shambles of abstract lines and shapes.

[The Farm] is a kind of inventory of the farmhouse owned by his family since 1911 in the town of Mont-roig del Camp. Miró himself regarded this work as a key in his career, describing it as “a summary of my entire life in the countryside” and “the summary of one period of my work, but also the point of departure for what was to follow.” (Wikipedia)
