Gravestone by Jean-Michel Basquiat, 1987

Medium: Acrylic and Crayon on Canvas

Heartache can defy time and type of relationship, and this is most evident with the effect of Andy Warhol's death on his friend Jean-Michel Basquiat. Though their relationship was deteriorating at the time, friends say that Basquiat was inconsolable when hearing that Warhol had died, and his work Gravestone was in homage to his dear friend.
