More details

Offset-printed poster designed by Jean-Michel Basquiat for his exhibition at Galerie Yvon Lambert on 9 January 1988 – one of his last shows before his death in August later that year at age 27. Paintings exhibited included ‘Light Blue Movers,’ ‘Riddle Me This Batman’, ‘She Installs Confidence and Picks His Brain Like a Salad,’ and ‘To Be Titled’. The superstar Francophone artist (of Puerto Rican and Haitian descent) was a huge fan of Paris – and Parisians also adore the Neo-Expressionist enfant terrible, with a new square, ‘Place Jean-Michel Basquiat,’ in the 13th arrondissement (where his friend and admirer Agnès b. recently opened her art foundation).

 

Made in France.

Influential gallerist and bookshop owner who's long helped to forge Parisians' art tastes

Yvon Lambert introduced to Paris new art movements, from Pop art and Minimalism, to Conceptual and Land art, and a whole generation of American artists, including Carl Andre, Lawrence Weiner, and Cy Twombly. For over 45 years until he closed his gallery in
 2014, Lambert was a cornerstone of the Paris art scene. In 2002 he opened a bookshop adjacent to his gallery, asserting his commitment to books and publishing and to continuing to discover and champion “the best of what’s new”.
