NEW YORK (AP) — More than 30 works by artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (zhahn mee-SHEHL' BAH'-skee-aht) will appear at a New York City exhibit before a private sale.
The exhibit at Sotheby's galleries runs May 2 through June 9. Most will be available for sale.
They include works on paper in marker and crayon from 1979 and monumental canvases from 1987.
The Brooklyn-born Basquiat was 27 when he died of a drug overdose in 1988.
Among the highlights is "Punch Bag" from 1983 depicting a black boxer. It's been owned by a European collector since the late 1990s.
Colorful canvas "Love Dub for A" from 1987 has been offered for sale only once before.
The auction record for a Basquiat is "Untitled," a painting of a black fisherman that sold for $26.4 million in November.
