An updated and expanded edition of the painter's writings and conversations

This expanded edition of the 2010 Ridinghouse anthology brings together more than 30 writings by, and interviews with, the German painter Georg Baselitz (born 1938), spanning from 1961 to today.

Known for his rebellious approach to Abstract Expressionism, here Baselitz discusses the impression his paintings convey, the act of painting, his biography and much more.

The texts shift between these personal pieces―some of which have never been published before in English―to interviews with Baselitz and a variety of critics and art historians. These conversations present a different voice as he responds to careful and critical questions about his work.

This updated anthology boasts a redesign, a new introduction and plate section, as well as over 10 new texts and interviews from 2010 to 2020, including “Notes from the Field,” “About Bateke,” “Avignon,” “Academy Rousseau” and “For Elke,” as well as conversations with Cornelius Tittel and Hartwig Fischer.
