WARHOL ON BASQUIAT

Andy Warhol’s last years were often spent in the company of his friend and collaborator Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The new book Warhol on Basquiat—edited by Michael Dayton Hermann—looks at this relationship through Warhol’s photographs, archival media, excerpts from Warhol’s diaries, and examples of the artworks they created together.
