Baselitz. Preview with Review

The Museum of Fine Arts started the series called “Classic Contemporary German Art” in 2012, with Günther Uecker’s exhibition, Material Becomes Picture. The next show in the series was Jörg Immendorff’s Long Live Painting! in 2014. The third, upcoming display focuses on the art of Georg Baselitz (1938), who started to work in Berlin.
Georg Baselitz, who is one of today’s best-known and most in-demand visual artists, spent the first twenty years of his career in relative obscurity. His output has been rich and important in all forms of visual art (painting, sculpture, drawing and graphic art).
The exhibition reveals Baselitz’s signature humour, his often critical and provocative attitude, his refusal to fall in line, his radical take on life and art, and his obsessive belief in tradition and a continuous regeneration thereof.

The exhibition is on view between 1 April and 2 July.
