Enlarging the 18th century pastoral scenes onto polyester and painting over them, Schnabel initiates a playful historical conflict of imagery: 'The prints are reinterpreted just as all yesterdays and todays are', the artist commented.
The exhibition is housed in the quiet grandeur of Pace’s Burlington Gardens site, now crucially shared with the New Royal Academy. Coinciding with the RA’s monumental 250th anniversary and the grand opening of its new spaces, the exhibition aptly celebrates Schnabel’s previous election as an Honorary Royal Academician in 2009, and traces a profound line of legacy from the old masters of the past to the cutting edge art of the present.
