Covering nearly every artistic medium, Georg Baselitz has established himself as a visual artist of international reputation. His work as a painter, sculptor, print maker and draughtsman made a significant impact on the artistic scene, where his often emphasized topics related to German national identity in a post-World War II era and particularly the role of German artists in that period. He has also revived the German Expressionism and returned the human figure to a central position in his paintings.
Georg Baselitz always strove to distinguish himself from the majority by rejecting accepted painting theories, thus developing his own “language” of images and forms in his paintings, sketches and graphic works.
