The Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat is pleased to announce the release of a new 18-color Basquiat screenprint titled 'Boxer Rebellion' (1982-83 / 2018), published by Flatiron Editions. The edition of 60 will be available exclusively through Pace Prints starting on Wednesday September 26. Pricing will be tiered and will start at $35,000 USD.
'Boxer Rebellion,' based on a work on paper created in 1982-83, depicts two boxers with stylized anatomical features exchanging blows, surrounded by references to boxing, the Chinese Boxer Rebellion, and related texts. The sport of boxing, famous black athletes and class struggle are recurring themes in Basquiat's work, which along with his trademark use of symbolsseen here principally in the form of Chinese charactersand the use of repeated and crossed out text, makes for an archetypal work in both content and style. The posthumous release is stamped and signed by Lisane Basquiat and Jeanine Heriveaux, the artist's sisters and administrators of the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
