About this title


By the time Georg Baselitz (b. 1938) came to artistic maturity in Germany in the mid-1960s, he had renounced the gestural abstraction prevalent in Europe and America and developed a new aesthetic based upon the figure and its representation as an abstract image. His bold canvases - which began to feature his signature upside-down figures later in the decade - have brought him international recognition, but only now is his important career the subject of a comprehensive survey, organized by the Guggenheim Museum and traveling to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and the Nationalgalerie, Berlin.
This monograph, by Guggenheim Deputy Director and Senior Curator Diane Waldman, documents every phase of the artist's career as a painter and sculptor. New translations of many of Baselitz's writings provide additional insight into his radical use of the figure in painting. A chronology, bibliography, and exhibition history are also included.

From Library Journal:

Baselitz's art has never been as highly regarded in the United States as in Europe. Published for the traveling retrospective exhibition, Waldman's book provides an opportunity to reappraise the work of this contemporary artist. The excellent essay combines biographical information with detailed criticism and interpretation of many of the major works. The translations of the artist's writings provide further insight into the evolving symbols in his work, the isolated images, the grotesqueries, and the disoriented inverted figures. The works can be moving or shocking but universally display an imaginative range. Baselitz may not be a giant, but he is certainly an impressive, persuasive artist, and the book should make the public more aware of his contributions to 20th-century art.?Paula Frosch, Metropolitan Museum of Art Lib., New York
