Item description for Georg Baselitz: A Retrospective by Norman Rosenthal...
Georg Baselitz paints violent and distinctive imagery that is reminiscent stylistically of both German and American Expressionism. To the public he is the painter of upside-down pictures. This extensively illustrated book---which reproduces all the major works from Baselitz's distinguished career---explores his development, revealing an artist whose concerns are derived from his experiences of post-war German society.
Essays deal with the philosophical preoccupations of the period and place the artist in the context of late twentieth-century art. The book also examines why the artist paints upside down and the importance of this to our understanding of his art. Baselitz is an artist who has rarely commented about his work. This volume presents for the first time his thoughts about his art and the context within which it is made.
