Basquiat's Unknown Notebooks Exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum Offer a Glimpse Into His Private Life

Last week, our Ravey Redd introduced you to the new Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum.

Thanks to this great preview of the exhibition from Artnet, we can share a more in-depth peek at the collection.

In addition to giving visitors a glimpse inside Basquiat's private world—which is filled with doodles and poems, half-heartedly crossed out words and scribbled grocery lists—the notebooks provide a new context with which to understand his paintings.

The Unknown Notebooks exhibition will run through August 23rd, 2015.
