The Keith Haring Foundation (by bequest from the above in 1990)

"For me it was very interesting how obviously early abstract painters like Braque, Picasso, or Brancusi really were directly inspired by things that were starting to turn up for the first time from Africa. You can see pictures of African sculptures in their studios; and in their paintings you notice that they put all of that directly through their western idea of art. With me it’s not so much looking at or trying to imitate as much as it is trying to embody the idea of “primitivism” in my own approach to the work and my attitude towards drawing and towards the world."
