Ms. Schnabel.

After we overheard Artnet critic Charlie Finch shouting at Salman Rushdie, “Christopher Hitchens is dead! Are you sad?” and watched well-dressed young people sipping mulled wine; after Jonas Mekas videotaped Lola Schnabel, who was wearing some kind of furry animal-print number, talking with her father (in a double-breasted suit jacket and unwashed pajama bottoms) in a cordoned-off room filled with her paintings, which were like her father’s only much worse,  Ms. Schnabel finally told Gallerist, with no small amount of venom, “I’m not talking.”

  6. Farrell Brickhouse says:

    Nice painting for a young painter, it must be quite a challenge being the daughter of such a father and an easy target despite the perks, but judging the work on its own merit- I like this painting and what it champions. We don’t get to choose our parents and who wouldn’t accept any attention given them. Lighten up.

    I dont care how much she loves her father, she needs to change her name if she wants to be an artist, we only need to think about the work, not the baggage

      This is very shalow what you sad, she has as a person absolute right for her identity who she is and can be proud or not for this part. There is only your problem to delute what you mixup. Also her background doesen’t change real quality of her work.
