Schnabel Saturday:

Julian Schnabel - Blue Japanese Painting No. 3

Julian Schnabel, Hat Full of Rain, 1996

Image: Julian Schnabel, Untitled (Los Patos del Buen Retiro), 1991, oil, gesso on velvet, 457 x 457 cm

personal note:

While living in Manhattan years ago spotted Schnabel twice, both times at galleries. The first sighting was at a group show being held at Tony Shafrazi Gallery. Schnabel was unshaven, wearing workboots and a sarong. He also had a bandana tied around his neck. Total mix-match. Had a laugh at that (but in a good way).

The second time I saw Schnabel was at Pace gallery where he was giving Francesco Clemente a tour of the "Fox Farm" painting series. Schnabel was very animated and used many sweeping gestures with his arms and hands while explaining/describing the pieces. Clemente was very silent while taking in the artwork just sort of nodding his head.
