The Art of Gossip (Girl)

In a previous post on Marilyn Minter, I mentioned the presence of her gorgeous artwork in Serena's (now Jenny's) bedroom on Gossip Girl. With the character of Serena's mother Lily Bass being an avid art collector the walls of the Gossip Girl sets are covered in gorgeous art pieces. Artist Richard Phillips has not one, but two works you've undoubtedly noticed if you watch the show. His "Spectrum" hangs in the staircase of the Van der Woodsen home, while the cropped version of his "Scout" holds a place of honor over Chuck Bass' bed. Reproductions of these pieces (as well as the Prada Marfa sign also in the Van der Woodsen home) are available via the Art Production Fund, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting contemporary artists and their work.
