Georg Baselitz

Painter and sculptor Georg Baselitz (born 1938) is part of a generation of German Neo-expressionist artists, including Markus Lüpertz and Jörg Immendorff, who from the beginning of the sixties strived to create a new German way of painting to overcome the horrors of the Holocaust through art.

Artist bio

Since the end of the sixties, Baselitz has almost consequently painted his images upside-down in order to free the motif from its lexical subject. In recent years he has also worked with a series of so-called ‘remix’ paintings, recreating some of his well-known motifs from when he was a young artist to incorporate the experience of the artist and human being he is today.
