The work of the German painter and sculptor Georg Baselitz (1938) is characterized by the fascination of spontaneous, expressive artistic creation. The artist shows a great artistic autonomy in his works of art.
While Georg Baselitz initially devoted himself to »Neo-Expressionism« by distorting and disfiguring figures and motifs, his focus today is on painting over his old pictures with black paint. The artist became famous with his pictures-on-the-head. Thus, from the end of the 1960s Baselitz painted pictures in which the motifs were turned by 180°degrees - thus the artist created a distinctive feature that distinguishes him to this day.
Today, Georg Baselitz is one of the world's most important artists in the field of painting and graphic art.
»The inversion of the motif gave me the freedom to concentrate entirely on color and composition.« - Georg Baselitz
