Catalogue Note

Michael Halsband made this iconic photograph of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat in 1985 to promote the artists’ collaborative exhibition ‘Warhol – Basquiat Paintings’ at Tony Shafrazi Gallery.  Images from this series in which the artists are pictured either squared off or being knocked out were used for promotional posters for the exhibition and for the invitation to the opening, presented by Palladium.
