Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat
Hardcover. 40 pages. Full color. Published by Little, Brown Books
Jean-Michel Basquiat and his unique, collage-style paintings rocketed to fame in the 1980s as a cultural phenomenon unlike anything the art world had ever seen. But before that, he was a little boy who saw art everywhere: in poetry books and museums, in games and in the words that we speak, and in the pulsing energy of New York City. Now, award-winning illustrator Javaka Steptoe's vivid text and bold artwork echoing Basquiat's own introduce young readers to the powerful message that art doesn't always have to be neat or clean--and definitely not inside the lines--to be beautiful.

Recommended for ages 6-9. Jean-Michel Basquiat is a Whitney Collection artist with 6 pieces in the Collection.
