In April 1982, gallery owner Larry Gagosian paid for American painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, a notorious party animal, to fly first class from New York to LA for an exhibition.
Gagosian tells the tale well: "It was like these four kind of rough-looking black kids hunched over a big pile of coke and then they just switched over to these huge joints. They had their big ski-glasses on, and big overcoats. The stewardess freaked. I thought 'Oh God, we're going to jail'". But when the stewardess protested that such behaviour was, actually illegal, Basquiat's response was as polite as it was firm. 'I thought this was first class...' he said."
