February 8th-14th Weekly Book Special

Next week marks the 20th anniversary of the death of legendary New York artist and social activist Keith Haring. Haring’s style of simple outline drawing combined Disney cartoons and the sophisticated “primitivism” of artists such as Pierre Alechinsky and Jean Dubuffet.

In the 1970s-1980s, Haring was swept into New York’s Downtown culture of Punk and New Wave music, and he translated the street culture into his art. His art continues to inspire people today. This week’s specials are two of his small format books. These books are in perfect condition. We ship in 24 hours.

Dogs
by Keith Haring (Hardcover, 68 pages, 2000, $13.00)

Dogs by Keith Haring

The dogs in the art of Keith Haring are anthropomorphic: dancing, laughing, ogling and showing off — they were on occasion an alter-ego of sorts. Here paired with quotes from Haring’s journals, we can see in these drawings the joy and inspiration he found in his friends. These drawings provide a touching and funny counterpoint to his more monumental work.

Babies
by Keith Haring (Hardcover, 64 pages, 2000, $13.00)

Dogs by Keith Haring

Keith Haring loved children and treasured their purity and innocence. The “radiant baby” was a signature images and appeared in many incarnations in his work: pregnant women dancing giddily, babies with halo and wings, cradled mother’s arms or playing with their dad. Matched with insightful entries from his writings, these joyful drawings continue to entertain, inspire and provoke.
