CHUPI IN CRISIS

New, 9 comments

Julian Schnabel's Palazzo Chupi Gesamtkunstwerk is about to lose one of the signature pieces that make it so...kunstwerky. A tipster just pointed us to a story from last week's Times Art & Design pages (sorry, uncultured swine like us tends to miss these things) which reports Schnabel is auctioning a late-period Picasso to pay down his Chupi debts. "Femme au Chapeau" formerly hung in Schnabel's living room. The creative ways in which he financed the Chupster were revealed a couple months ago, and Schnabel says the Picasso sale (it's expected to fetch $8-$12 million) will satisfy one of his loans.
