Donald Baechler

by Julie Ryan

In a well-appointed French restaurant in Zurich, a similarly well-appointed collector is sharing foie gras ice cream and espresso with the artist Donald Baechler. The collector has several large Baechler works in several of her large homes, and is now turning her attention to the Chelsea Hotel in New York, where Baechler has been a resident since the late 1990s. Entertained by the landmark’s notorious history, she invited herself over to see Baechler’s apartment there, and asked how he entered the building.
