“Andy had a respect for Jean-Michel’s talent that I’d never seen him show toward any other of the younger artists,” says Hackett. “And, of course, Andy, whose own mother, Julia, had come to New York and lived with him for many years, was very interested in Jean-Michel’s relationship with his mother, Matilda.”

Portrait of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Madonna, by Maripol (1982).

Basquiat and Madonna dated in 1982/1983. Maripol knew them both independent of their relationship with one another. She knew Madonna prior as two of her closest friends were backup dancers for the musician. An artist herself, Maripol hung one of her first paintings for a Madonna performance at the Lucky Strike, and she, along with David Svitzer, made the pop star jewelry.
