Schnabel Retrospective in Greenwich

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.

Now 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.
