Julian Schnabel: Trees of Home (For Peter Beard)

Posted by Fabio 4 December 2020

The artist’s subject is always what to paint and how to paint, in this case the distinctive allée of trees in Saint-Rémy de Provence, made famous by the many paintings and drawings of Vincent van Gogh, who spent a year in that small town’s asylum, provide an opportunity. With the Trees of Home (For Peter Beard), Schnabel celebrates the notion of an enriching dialogue – with a subject, a technique, a relationship – that endures and evolves over time. He has dedicated the exhibition to the memory of his lifelong friend, the late American artist and photographer Peter Beard.
