Catalogue Note

“These frequent references… reveal Basquiat’s interest in aspects of commerce—trading, selling and buying. Basquiat is scrutinizing man’s seizure and monopolization of the earth’s animal and material resources, and questioning why and how these resources, that are ideally owned by all of the world’s inhabitants, have become objects of manipulation, power and wealth at the expense of the wellbeing of all mankind.”

Richard Marshall, "Jean-Michel Basquiat and His Subjects," in Enrico Navarra, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Paris 2000, p. 43
