Jean-Michel Basquiat – Egon Schiele
Through January 21, 2019 (Basquiat) and January 14, 2019 (Schiele)
Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris
Separate exhibitions of two painters—Egon Schiele (1890–1918) and Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988)—linked by their fascinating intensity and brief, meteoric lives are on view at the Fondation Louis Vuitton: together, the exhibitions present a total of 250 works selected from the two artists’ exceptional oeuvres. Schiele and Basquiat are major figures in twentieth-century art, each having created a body of work with rare impact and permanency in a very short period. The exhibitions underline the specific context behind the artists’ work, which was done during two very different periods in history.
