The Fondation Louis Vuitton is currently showcasing the work of two influential artists that died in their prime. Both Jean-Michel Basquiat and Egon Schiele were visionaries of their respective eras. They both created engaging, shocking work that depicted real people and interesting human forms in a way that no-one else was. Their lives and surroundings could not have been more different. On one side we have Schiele in Vienna in the 1910s. His bold work was decades ahead of its time. Then we have Basquait in New York in the 1980s.
Both artists created vast collections over a short period and then died young – Basquiat from an overdose aged 27 and Schiele from the influenza epidemic of 1918.
The gallery has a vast collection of work from both artists on display over the winter period. This is a great chance to see influential pieces side by side for the first time in decades.
The show runs until January 14th.
