Baselitz: Painter

Author(s): Louisiana Museum of Modern Art


Ever since 1963, when East Berlin's renowned art academy, Hochschule der Kunste, expelled Georg Baselitz for what's been translated as "sociopolitical immaturity," and the police confiscated work from his first solo show, he's officially been an art-world bad boy. More than 40 years into his career, he's still literally turning his subjects upside down, and he is considered one of Europe's most influential painters. This collection of more than 100 works spanning from Baselitz's earliest years to the present day offers an unparalleled overview of his oeuvre, as well as insight into the subtle changes that have come to his work as he has matured: In recent years the distinctive visual universe that grew out of the artist's study of art, myth and literature has expanded to make room for the personal, for memories of an upbringing in the German and Slavic cultural borderland, for everyday life and his family and for revisiting works by himself and others.
