Julian Schnabel

American painter and filmmaker Julian Schnabel (b. 1951, New York) synthesized the postmodern interests in earlier artistic movements such as German Expressionism and Abstract Expressionism, with a heightened sense of experimentation with materiality. 


Since his first solo exhibition in 1979, Schnabel has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, including retrospectives organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1987); Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona (1995); Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (2004); Museo Correr, Venice (2011); Brant Foundation Art Study Center, Greenwich, Connecticut (2013); Museo de São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand (2014); the University of Michigan Museum of Art, Ann Arbor (2015); the Aspen Art Museum, Colorado (2016); The Glass House, New Canaan, Connecticut (2017); and Aros Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark (2018).
