Color Plates. Fine. Georg Baselitz is a German artist known for his Neo-Expressionist paintings which he would often work on upside-down. His practice, which includes sculpture and printmaking, explores what it means to be a German artist in the post-war era, and is characterized by his bold colors, forceful strokes, and the incorporation of archetypes and folklore. His provocative subject matter pertaining to his country's political history and his outspokenness have, at times, made him a polarizing figure in the art world. Born Hans-Georg Kern January 23, 1938 in Deutschbaselitz, Saxony, Baselitz renamed himself after his hometown in 1961. He counts Willem de Kooning as a lasting source of inspiration ever since seeing his work in a touring exhibition of American Abstract Expressionists as a student, and his work also bears the influence of Philip Guston and Jackson Pollock. He lives and works in Salzburg, Austria.
