“Beauty seems to be at the heart of what Julian Schnabel seeks in a series of recent paintings based on the image of a woman from an old Chinese mirror. However bombastic some people may find him, Schnabel is also capable of passages of painting that are lyrical and tender, where a memory is haunting – at once fragile and persistent. We may be wary of the Orientalism, of the nostalgia, although we are won over by the play of gesture against the calmness of the woman’s face.” (T.Godfrey. in “Painting Today”) The artwork described above is subject to changes in availability and price without prior notice.
