"In a period - the eighties - that consciously rejected the grand narratives that had guided human action over the last two centuries, Haring represented the Zeitgeist, the spirit of the time: he was a true artist of the moment, and lived his life with the same intensity and originality as the era with which he will forever be identified." Gianni Mercurio Exh. Cat., Milan, Triennale di Milan, The Keith Haring Show, 2005, p. 27
The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the white is slightly more transparent in the original.
