The last major survey of Julian Schnabel’s work was in 1987 at the Whitney Museum in Manhattan. Peter Brant was already keen on the artist before then, but after the big show he began collecting him in earnest. Artist and Film Director Schnabel was first established as a star of the Soho art scene in the 80's.
The Brant Foundation Art Study Center in Greenwich, Conn. USA, has organized what it bills as
the first comprehensive exhibit of Schnabel’s work since then, comprised
of close to 50 abstract and figurative paintings and sculptures
stretching from the late Seventies to the present day, the majority of
them, like “Accatone” (1978), from the Brants’ own collection.
