Contemporary Art Evening Sale 9 October 2021 • 8:00 PM HKT • Hong Kong

S otheby’s Hong Kong Fall 2021 Contemporary Art Evening Sale presents a refined selection of exceptional masterpieces by leading contemporary artists from around the world. Leading the Evening Sale is Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Untitled (Red Warrior) from 1982, featuring the most favoured motif from the artist’s oeuvre—the weapon-wielding warrior.


香港蘇富比2021年秋季當代藝術晚拍誠意呈獻一系列東西方當代巨匠傑作,該場將由尚·米榭·巴斯奇亞1982年鉅作《無題(紅戰士)》領銜,呈現其筆下作品備受鍾愛的戰士圖像。


The Red Warrior《無題(紅戰士)》

Created in the pivotal year of 1982, Untitled (Red Warrior) is an audacious masterwork from the most desirable period of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s short, intensely prolific career. Untitled (Red Warrior) is an extraordinary vision of Basquiat’s artistic prowess; the bold, gestural lines and intense colour indicative of the artist at his peak.

Presenting Basquiat’s archetypal motif of the isolated hero, the warrior can be interpreted as a self-portrait, a triumphal symbol of the Black artist conquering the invisible oppressor within the image, succeeding in an art world that was predominantly white. Fresh to market, this painting is an extremely rare, museum-quality work to be offered in Asia, the last remaining work from the patron’s private collection.

EXHIBITION POSTER FOR NEW YORK, VREJ BAGHOOMIAN GALLERY, JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT, ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR APRIL - JUNE 1988, POSTPONED TO 21 OCTOBER - 25 NOVEMBER 1989
紐約弗雷日・巴古米恩畫廊「尚・米榭・巴斯基亞」展覽海報,原定1988年4月至6月舉行,實際上延期至1989年10月21日至11月25日

Untitled (Red Warrior) comes with a distinguished provenance, having been exhibited at the significant 1989 posthumous show, Jean-Michel Basquiat at Vrej Baghoomian Gallery in New York, and featured in the acclaimed Picasso, Bacon & Basquiat exhibition at Tony Shafrazi Gallery in New York in 2004.

《無題(紅戰士)》作於1982年,出自尚·米榭·巴斯奇亞傳奇卻短暫的藝術生涯中極受追捧的創作時段。《無題(紅戰士)》標誌著藝術家的雄厚實力以及非凡遠景,作品展現的大膽揮毫以及強烈色彩反映著其的職業生涯的登峰造極。

作品中的孤傲英雄在巴斯奇亞的創作中甚具代表性,它可被解讀為藝術家的自畫像,一個象徵他作為黑人藝術家在以白人為主的藝術歷史演進中征服被邊緣化的勝利圖像。首呈亞洲拍場,本作尤為珍罕,堪稱博物館級鉅作,是藝術家仍為私人收藏的最後一幅作品。

《無題(紅戰士)》來源顯赫,曾於1989年紐約Vrej Baghoomian畫廊舉辦的展覽「Jean-Michel Basquiat」中展出,及後亦參展紐約Tony Shafrazi畫廊於2004年舉辦的畢加索、培根與巴斯基亞群展。
