“Jawbone of an Ass” by Jean-Michel Basquiat—a Contemporary artist and notorious figure during the Neo-expressionist art movement—was originally created in 1982 and then reproduced by Basquiat’s estate in a 2005 limited edition release. The original, mixed-media painting was created using acrylics, oil sticks, and paper collages. Basquiat’s religious knowledge reveals itself in this work: The title refers to a Christian passage where Samson, thanks to his incredible strength, claims to have slain a thousand men using only the jawbone of an ass. The hand-pulled silkscreen measures 43 inches tall and 60 inches wide and is signed, stamped, and authenticated by the Executor of the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
