About the artwork: Jean-Michel Basquiat’s crown is a symbol that often appears in his artwork and has become synonymous with his work. The first crown appeared in Red Kings (1981), and through all later presences of the crown in his work Basquiat depicted Black men as saints and kings. Through the crown symbol, the artist recognizes the power of his influences and heroes, depicting them and himself as kings.
