Offset lithograph in 4 colours on light art paper. Some light creasing but otherwise in very good condition. Presented in a black wooden frame with conservation acrylic glazing. Signed by Keith Haring, L A II as L A Doux and Michael Hafftka. A poster printed to advertise an exhibition at Gallery Schlesinger-Boisante, 5-26 February 1983. “Haring and L A II found an old crumpled Checker cab hood and dragged it to Keith’s studio to make a work for me (Keith made a point of telling me that they dragged it for blocks to make the work). The other works by Keith & L A II were a radiator cover and a fiberglass sculpture, about six feet tall, of the statue of liberty. Work by Fab Five Freddy (Fred Brathwaite, a close friend of Basquiat) was a painting on a mattress.” Excerpt from gallery owner Elise Boisante.
