Summary: Georg Baselitz, geboren 1938 im sachsischen Deutschbaselitz als Hans-Georg Kern, zahlt zu den wichtigsten deutschen Künstlern der Gegenwart. Schon früh entdeckte er die Druckgrafik, die ersten Radierungen entstanden im Jahr 1964. Fortan experimentierte er mit den verschiedensten. Techniken wie der Kaltnadelradierung, der Aquatinta, später mit Holz- und Linolschnitt, lotete die spezifischen Bedingungen dieser künstlerischen Ausdrucksformen aus und entwickelte ein ganz eigenständiges Werk auf Papier. Mit durchgehend selten oder noch nie ausgestellten Blättern präsentiert der Band eine kostbare Auswahl aus diesem für Baselitz so wesentlichen Schaffensbereich. Die druckgrafischen Unikate, Zustandsfolgen und seltenen Probedrucke aus den Jahren 1964 bis 1983 stammen aus der exzellenten Sammlung von Herzog Franz von Bayern, dem Chef des Hauses Wittelsbach. Baselitz' erste Radierungen sind ebenso vertreten wie figürliche Helden-Darstellungen aus der Mitte der 1960er-Jahre, Auszüge aus den Mappenwerken Kuhe (1969), Adler und Baume (beide 1974) oder Beispiele seiner berühmten, seit 1969 auf dem Kopf stehenden Bilder.

About this title

Synopsis:

Text in book is in German. Georg Baselitz was born Hans-Georg Kern in 1938 in Deutschbaselitz, Saxony, and is one of the most important contemporary artists in Germany. He discovered the print medium early on, producing his first etchings in 1964. From then on he experimented with very different techniques, such as dry-point, aquatint, and then later with wood- and linocuts. In the process he explored the specific requirements of these artistic forms of expression, developing his own unique works on paper. With the inclusion of prints that have never before been exhibited, this volume presents a choice selection of works from a very important branch of Baselitz's oeuvre. The original prints, print series, and rare artist's proofs dating from 1964 to 1983 stem from the excellent collection belonging to Franz, Duke of Bavaria, head of the House of Wittelsbach. This book contains Baselitz's first etchings, the figural "Heroes" from the mid-sixties, and excerpts from the portfolio series "Cows" (1969), "Eagles", and "Trees" (both 1974). It also includes examples of his famous inverted pictures, which he has been making since 1969.
