With more than 50 paintings from public and private collections, many from the years between 1981 and ’83, when the artist was in his early 20s, this show brought lines stretching halfway down 24th Street at its opening on Thursday. Chock full of his intense, bright colors and trademark nervous brushwork, along with scrawled text often crossed out, the exhibiton presents a rich overview of canvases devoted to boxers (Sugar Ray Robinson), musicians (an LP-shaped example for Charlie Parker) and other inspirations for the legendary artist.
