Georg Baselitz is a well regarded neo-expressionist born in Germany but living in Austria since 2013. Mr. Baselitz began painting at age 14. He enrolled in an East Berlin art school in 1956 then was quickly expelled due to his “sociopolitical immaturity” during those Cold War days when East Berlin was under Communist rule.
After his expulsion, Mr. Baselitz was able to enroll in a West Berlin art school the following year. He completed his studies without controversy. By 1963, Mr. Baselitz held his first solo exhibition but two of his works were seized by the authorities. During the late 1960’s Baselitz began painting in large formats, including his 1969 ‘inverted motifs’ that included “The Wood On Its Head”.
Mr. Baselitz is very well known for painting “The Gleaner” and “Alder”, for his inverted images, landscapes and seascapes. He has shown his art throughout Europe and was the designer of a 1994 stamp for the French Foreign Service.
