Georg Baselitz is a German painter and sculptor known for his inverted imagery and his exploration of German history and identity. Born in 1938 in Deutschbaselitz, Germany, Baselitz has established himself as one of the leading artists of his generation. In creating his artworks, Baselitz draws inspiration from diverse sources which include Soviet era illustrations, art of the Mannerist period, and African sculpture. He was responsible for the revival of Neo-Expressionism which dominated German art in the 1970s and 80s. One of the most defining features of his work is his inverted paintings, whereby he paints his subjects upside down. He first began using this painting practice in the 1960s as a way of challenging conventional ideas about representation and meaning. By turning his subjects upside down, Baselitz invites the viewer to question their assumptions about the image and to re-consider the meaning of the artwork. This results in images which create feelings of unease and disquiet. Through his art, Georg Baselitz frequently questions what it means to be German and a German artist after World War Two. Through his unflinching confrontation of the past, and considerations of contemporary German identity, he paves the way for fellow German artists to face this question with him. Throughout his career, he has been an advocate for the continued relevance of painting, and has argued that it remains a vital form of artistic expression in the 21st century. His innovative and groundbreaking works have helped to expand our understanding of what painting can be and what it can do. Georg Baselitz has had numerous important solo exhibitions throughout his career, including Royal Academy of Arts in London in 2007, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. in 2018, and the Albertina Museum in Vienna in 2023.
