From 1984 to 1985, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) and Andy Warhol (1928-1987) produced approximately 160 paintings "four-handed", some of the greatest of their respective careers.

Basquiat admired Warhol as an elder, a key figure in the art world, the initiator of a new language and an original relationship to popular culture. In return, Warhol found in Basquiat a renewed interest in painting. With him, he started painting with a brush again. A true artistic dialogue of styles and forms was established between them.

In this book, published in conjunction with the exhibition "Basquiat × Warhol, à quatre mains" presented in Paris from April 5th to August 28th, 2023, are grouped more than a hundred paintings signed jointly by the two artists as well as individual works, and works of other personalities such as Michael Halsband, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf amongst others, in order to recreate the art scene of downtown New York in the 1980s.
