Georg Baselitz Biography, History and Paintings
Georg Baselitz
4.

GEORG BASELITZ
(1938-) In 1969, the German artist started painting the images in his colourful and energetic pictures upside down, challenging the conventional way we look at paintings.

His paintings took a matter of weeks to complete; the gloopy paint drips down the canvas - his paintings are very 'masculine', in the same way that Jackson Pollock's are: the whole body has been engaged in producing their works.

The friendly sculpture, Sliced Head of 1986 is an example of Baselitz having fun with his work - a bust of a head is indeed sliced and attacked wood, with a slap of bright pink paint right across the face.

He created work that requires a tilt of the head to even start to understand.
