Georg Baselitz

New Walk Museum & Art Gallery

20 September 2014 – 18 January 2015

Baselitz's work has never been seen in Leicester before.

Georg Baselitz, Wo ist der gelbe Milchkrug, Frau Vogel, 1989

One of the Neo-Expressionist German artists, Baselitz's paintings are characterised by deformation and vibrant colours - as demonstrated in his famous upside-down images. Baselitz has been heralded as one of the most revolutionary painters of the 20th century, and he spent many years working outside the mainstream of contemporary art. Rebelling against the dominance of abstract painting, his work is instead rich with symbolism.

The gallery's German Expressionist collection has been redisplayed and reopens to coincide with this exhibition.
