If you think "the guy must have been on drugs" when he painted this- you're right! "True to the cliché of burning bright and short, Basquiat died aged 27, three years after the cover shoot, of a heroin overdose." $48.8 million at auction... shock art. Unfortunate commentary on our culture isn't it?
update: 10/18. This painting was recovered the day after a burglary. The article notes that it s now worth $11.3 million. link
