Childhood and Family:
Lola Montes Schnabel was born in 1980. She is the daughter of artist/director Julian Schnabel (born on October 26, 1951) and his first wife, Jacqueline. Lola has two younger siblings, Stella Schnabel, who once dated Red Hot Chili Peppers lead guitarist John Frusciante, and Vito Maria Schnabel. From his father's next marriage to actress Olatz López Garmendia, she becomes the older sister of twins Olmo Luis Schnabel (Olmo Schnabel) and Cy Juan Schnabel (Cy Schnabel).
The eldest of the Schnabel children, Lola Schnabel has followed in her famous father's footsteps in the world of art by releasing her first 'artist's book' called “Remember Me” in 2001. Published by Perceval Press of Santa Monica, the book consisted of 26 pages of redolent Polaroid color photos combined with rough-hewn drawings and watercolors of figures that correspond the senior Schnabel and family friend Francesco Clemente.
Prior to the release of the book, the younger Schnabel appeared in two films helmed by her father. The 1996 “Basquiat,” a biopic starring Jeffrey Wright, Michael Wincott and Benicio Del Toro, saw Lola play the small role of Jacqueline Milo. She resurfaced four year later as girl with keys in “Before Night Falls” (2000), which starred Javier Bardem and Olivier Martinez. The film also featured her stepmother Olatz López Garmendia and her siblings, Vito Maria and Stella Schnabel.
Lola is set to branch out into film directing. Teaming up with Steve Nash, who established a film production company with his cousin, director Ezra Holland, she will direct a$30,000 budget independent film produced by Nash.
