Georg Baselitz, a painter, sculptor and printmaker, was born in 1938 in Deutschbaselitz. As one of the most famous German artists of our times, Baselitz's work firmly rooted in the traditions of German painting, yet beyond all artistic movements and styles, making him an exceptionally autonomous figure in art. For over fifty years, continuous renewal and critical (self-)reflection have been the centre of Baselitz's art. The approach to his own past and memories, removing them from their original historical context and period, he brings past details into the present, and adapts them to the new place and time, thus creating a new tradition and a 'new past'.
