Jean-Michel Basquiat, IRONY OF THE NEGRO POLICEMAN, 1981,
Acrylic and Oil Paintstick on Wood. 72 X 48


Did not know this but last week in a landmark judgement, the Supreme Court of India termed this painting of "Bharat Mata" in nude as a "work of art". It's pretty controversial as the right-wing Hindoos weren't big fans. They so cray cray, them boys.
