Georg Baselitz

In the beginning of his career, Baselitz painted with oil on canvas – in his artworks he tried to process the war in Germany. Later on, his style changed and the artist started working with the etching technique more and more. Also, his work can be considered as abstract and therefore Baselitz is also part of the Neo-expressionism movement – and influenced German artists after World War II a lot. Baselitz is best known for his intervened or upside-down paintings: they emphasize the drawing itself and require more concentration from the artist.
