Georg Baselitz. 100 Drawings
A retrospective with one hundred works on paper, commemorating the eighty-fifth birthday of Georg Baselitz.
To mark his eighty-fifth birthday, the famous international German artist Georg Baselitz donated a collection of works on paper to both the Albertina Museum in Vienna and the Morgan Library in New York. This volume combines the one hundred sheets to create a representative retrospective, providing by virtue of its concentration an important contribution to the understanding of Baselitz’s entire oeuvre. The two extensive sets of drawings and watercolors date from different creative phases, ranging from the early 1960s to the present day. Through this direct medium, the works provide an intimate insight into the artist’s creative process across the past five decades. An interview with Georg Baselitz conducted to mark this publication provides information about the significance of the works on paper in the genesis of his works and within his oeuvre.
