As seen in the TV show "Gossip Girl"
Not since Andy Warhol had a cameo on “The Love Boat” in 1985 have contemporary art fans had this great an excuse to watch prime time television. As the Van der Woodsens moved back into their renovated loft on “Gossip Girl” this week, viewers enjoyed the addition of a scaled-down version of Richard Phillips’s 1998 painting “Spectrum.” Although the source material for his piece was a fashion advertisement from the late 1960s, “on set they remarked that it looks a lot like Leighton Meester,” the artist recalls. Professing his deep admiration for the show’s revelatory narcotic effect, Mr. Phillips cited the overlap between issues he’s tackled on canvas and the many themes explored on “Gossip Girl,” such as “lost virginity, teen pregnancy, divorce, rape, manslaughter, suspected homicide, teen suicide, gay sexual identity, eating disorders, criminal blackmail, theft, as well as drug addiction and sex with multiple partners.”
