La Nil, Paintings: 1988–2014


Original price- $30.00 “As the artist was grieving the loss of a dear friend…he offered a very straightforward statement of what his art is: the feeling of life.”

On July 5, 2011, the day of Cy Twombly’s death, Julian Schnabel painted a series of cruciform works as a tribute to the late artist who was an important influencer of his early painting and a close friend. Made for the São Paulo Museum of Art, La Nil examines these artworks next to a number of recent paintings and sculptural work from Schnabel.
