Synopsis: Georg Baselitz stands as one of the major figures in the history of German art of the post-war era. Notable for having persistently flown in the face of whatever artistic convention predominated at the time√Ę‚¨‚ initially, Social Realism, later Abstraction and Informal Art√Ę‚¨‚ Baselitz has been able to claim a place for the last forty years as one of the most markedly original artists on the scene. Erroneously held to be an exponent of neo-Expressionism, Baselitz possesses a highly complex artistic personality, which stems from his willingness to freely experiment with painting, and move beyond the restrictions of formal categories and content-based mores. Vaunting texts written by Baselitz himself, a wealth of detailed information, and an exceptionally rich body of images, this monograph forms an exhaustive documentation of the artist's oeuvre. The volume is further embellished by a significant essay by Michael Auping, Chief Curator of the Modern Art Museum at Fort Worth (Texas) and author of numerous monographs on the major artists of our times. It has been edited by Detlev Gretenkort, a leading expert on the work of Baselitz.
