About the artwork:
King Pleasure, 1987
King Pleasure is the title of a painting created by Jean-Michel in 1987 and the name of a bebop-loving bartender turned jazz vocalist whose first hit, in 1952, “Moody’s Mood For Love,” catapulted him to fame. The song was a favorite of the WBLS DJ Frankie Crocker, who played it at the close of his show every night in the 1970s. Gerard Basquiat, Jean-Michel’s father, was also fond of the tune.
King Pleasure also refers to the highly acclaimed Jean-Michel Basquiat King Pleasure exhibition that was organized and curated by the family of Jean-Michel Basquiat, currently on exhibit in Los Angeles after its initial New York City run. The groundbreaking show includes over 200 never-before-seen and rarely shown paintings, drawings, multimedia presentations, ephemera, and artifacts that tell the story of Jean-Michel from an intimate perspective, intertwining his artistic endeavors with his personal life, influences, and the times in which he lived.
