Catalogue Note

“The paintings which resulted from [Warhol and Basquiat’s] collaboration are the perfect testimony to the depth and importance of their friendship. The quality of the paintings mirrors the quality of the relationship. The sense of humor which permeates all of the works recalls the laughter while they were being made. They are truly an invention of what William S. Burroughs called 'The Third Mind'—two amazing minds fusing together to create a third totally separate and unique one.” Keith Haring, "Painting the Third Man (1988)" reprinted in Exh. Cat., Milwaukee Art Museum, Andy Warhol: The Last Decade, 2009, p. 205
