A one-painting Basquiat exhibition arrives at Seattle Art Museum

It’s a one image show at Seattle Art Museum as 
Jean-Michel Basquiat’s painting “Untitled” opens to the public for the first West Coast presentation of his work.

That made it  the sixth most expensive work ever sold at auction. (according to the NYTimes)
This is the second stop on the painting’s tour that started at the Brooklyn Museum, in the borough where Basquiat grew up.   Basquiat noted that his subjects are “royalty, heroism and the street.” It’s on display through Monday, Aug. 13.
