Notes: 

This watercolor belongs to a group of paintings and drawings called Remix, in which Baselitz revisited earlier themes and compositions. The feet, a recurrent subject in his art, are depicted upside down, a device Baselitz adopted in 1969 as a way to avoid the dilemma between abstraction and figuration. Typically, he first drew the motif in a free, linear ink drawing before adding a few washes of color.
