American art megastar Julian Schnabel (born 1951) has made a metier of both painting and film, and while he is equally acclaimed for his achievements in each of these disciplines, the works have often been kept separate in the public eye. Yet Schnabel's painting has drawn on cinematic imagery for years, often connecting otherwise disparate work via this theme, and his award-winning films have drawn on art both formally and as subject matter -- most famously in the 1996 hit 'Basquiat'. Schnabel himself resists categorization: "I make art," he says,"whether it is painting, writing, photography or making a movie."

This survey of Schnabel's career to date presents the artist's painterly production, from the 1970s through to the present, juxtaposing his large-scale paintings with his numerous critically acclaimed movies: 'Basquiat' (1996), 'Before Night Falls' (2000), 'The Diving Bell and the Butterfly' (2007) and his newest film 'Miral' (2010), which addresses the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The complete scripts of each of these movies are featured, punctuated with stills chosen by Schnabel.

Published for the Art Gallery of Ontario's 2010 exhibition, 'Julian Schnabel: Art and Film' is the first appraisal of how Schnabel works across media, bridging painting, writing and cinema.
