October 2021Christie's New York - United StatesAnatomy, The Scapula - Signed Print

Meaning & Analysis

The artist's passionate drawing approach is tempered by a close understanding of the physical reality of his subject matter. The significant negative space which occupies the prints of the Anatomy series offers a stark counterpoint to the maximalist use of colour and shape which defines many of the artist’s most famous works, including Jawbone Of An Ass. An errant line to the left of the drawing of the scapula upsets the print’s clinical aspect and similarity to medical textbooks, and gestures to Basquiat’s tendency to disrupt established modes of representation.

The tissues' brittleness is emphasised by the fact that the drawings are distinctly two-dimensional in nature, with the bones being rendered in a manner that is almost cartoon-like, such is their minimalism.

The fragility of the bodily parts is captured in the drawings through the use of delicate, wiry lines.
