Keith Haring (1958-1990)

Portrait of Joseph Beuys (Littmann p.61), 1986
Screenprint in gold ink on white canvas, signed in black felt pen, dated and numbered IX/XXX (a proof aside from the edition of 90 and 6 artist's proofs in brown ink on brown canvas), published by Edition Schellmann, Munich and New York and Galerie Bernd Klüser, Munich, the full sheet.
sheet 31 1/4 x 23 5/8in (79.5 x 60cm)


Rare proof in gold ink. Haring depicts Beuys as an oak tree, an homage to Beuys' installation at Documenta 7 where the artist planted 7,000 oak trees throughout the city of Kassel. Haring, who was also participating in Documenta 7, appreciated the older artist's emphasis on creating works that would help society.
