Provenance: Private collection of modern and contemporary art by gallery owner Urbano Quinto (Rhodes, 1933-Novara, Italy, 1997), directly purchased from Keith Haring in the period in which the artist made his personal exhibition at the Robert Fraser Gallery, located in London's Cork Street, from October to November 1983. During his stay in London, Urbano began a friendship with Robert Fraser, which remained until the gallery owner's death in 1986. Urbano Quinto met Keith Haring in The Factory; The meeting with Andy Warhol, however, took place in April 1977 during the opening of Studio 54, a night club in New York.
Keith Allen Haring was an American artist whose pop art and graffiti-like work grew out of the New York City street culture of the 1980s. Much of his work includes sexual allusions that turned into social activism. He achieved this by using sexual images to advocate for safe sex and AIDS awareness.Haring's work grew to popularity from his spontaneous drawings in New York City subways—chalk outlines of figures, dogs, and other stylized images on blank black advertising-space backgrounds. After public recognition he created larger scale works, such as colorful murals, many of them commissioned.His imagery has "become a widely recognized visual language". His later work often addressed political and societal themes—especially homosexuality and AIDS—through his own iconography.Haring died on February 16, 1990, of AIDS-related complications. In 2014 Haring was one of the inaugural honorees in the Rainbow Honor Walk, a walk of fame in San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood noting LGBTQ people who have "made significant contributions in their fields." In June 2019, Haring was one of the inaugural fifty American "pioneers, trailblazers, and heroes" inducted on the National LGBTQ Wall of Honor within the Stonewall National Monument (SNM) in New York City's Stonewall Inn.
