Puzzled: To get an idea of what Julian Schnabel's eight paintings at PaceWildenstein Gallery look like, picture one of those generic portraits that often show up in thrift stores: the type in which a solitary figure hovers in front of a blurry field of color. Next, take away all of the earnest charm the amateur work might have. Then multiply its dimensions four or five times, dunk it in resin and splash a bucket or two of Liquid Paper over large parts of its shiny surface.

Murray died Sunday at her home in Granville, N.Y. The cause was complications from lung cancer, said Jennifer Joy of PaceWildenstein gallery in New York City, which represented Murray. She had been a resident of Granville and New York City.

Superficially similar, in that each artist strips painting down to bare essentials (i.e., line and color), the bodily scaled abstractions by these two renowned artists actually make radically different propositions about art's relationship to time.
