Two giants meet at Fondation Vuitton

What links Egon Schiele and Jean-Michel Basquiat? This exhibition showed me that despite being one century apart, coming from different cultures and backgrounds the two artists shared quite a lot. Both criticized their societies as well as ironized about themselves despite their existential anguish; they possessed sure brush-strokes and a frenetic creativity. Both also died way too young: Schiele (1890-1918) in the Spanish flu and Basquiat (1960-88) in an overdose.
