The Brant Foundation is pleased to present Self-Portraits of Others, a solo exhibition of new works by Julian Schnabel. Created between 2018 – 2020, this series explores the evolution of Schnabel’s artistic practice while making At Eternity’s Gate, a film about the life of Vincent van Gogh. The exhibition features twenty-five plate paintings that examine the theme of portraiture throughout art history.
Self-Portraits of Others is the third exhibition to be held at The Brant Foundation’s New York location.
Julian Schnabel (born in Brooklyn, New York, 1951, raised in Brownsville, Texas) has always been a revolutionary voice in painting and all his other creative endeavors. His use of preexisting materials not traditionally used in art making, varied painting surfaces, and unconventional modes of construction were pivotal in the reemergence of painting in the United States and beyond since the late 1970s. He invented a new language within painting that paved the way for and influenced a new generation of artists.
