Postcard invitation announcing Basquiat's December 1988 show at the Annina Nosei Gallery in NYC.
NY: Annina Nosei, 1988.
Printed in white against a funereal black background. This show took place just a few months after Basquiat's death and a month after his memorial service. Nosei was Basquiat's first dealer. She provided him with studio space in her basement, published his first print portfolio, and gave him his first solo exhibition in the US which was a huge critical success that launched his career. Stamped and postmarked on the back, else fine. A rare card, only the second one we've handled.
