Observers of contemporary art associate the name Julian Schnabel, born in 1951 in New York, with highly evocative, large-scale paintings. Since his early exhibitions in the US and Europe in the eighties, the work of this artist has been hailed as a new milestone in the development of painting, an art form that had been declared dead by many in earlier years. Julian Schnabel is a virtually unrivalled master in the use of large canvases and a broad range of materials. Fragmentation and overlapping play an important role in Schnabel's art, in terms of both material and content. His paintings do not exhibit a consistent style but instead combine oil painting and collage techniques, classical pictorial elements inspired by historical art, neo-Expressionist features, as well as figuration and abstraction, gesture and structure. This book presents a broad selection of paintings in a survey of Schnabel's diverse oeuvre, with emphasis placed on works from 1990 to the present.
