The Artist

Georg Baselitz

Georg Baselitz has always created art that stays well away from the mainstream. He rejected the abstract art that was dominating Modernism in the 1950s and 60s and became a Post-Modernist painter, print maker and sculptor. His work has had a big impact on Neo-Expressionist art in Germany. Baselitz attended the Academy of Art in East Berlin for one year (1956) and completed his art training at the Academy in West Berlin. His influences include Existentialism Dada and Art Brut. Most of Georg’s images features stylised figures with exaggerated attributes that are intended to be symbolic. His first solo exhibition of paintings, shown at a Berlin gallery in 1963, outraged the public and resulted in several works being confiscated for indecency.
