He certainly is one of the foremost artists of our time: Georg Baselitz. To mark his eightieth birthday, the Fondation Beyeler shows an extensive selection of his work.

The exhibition, organized in close cooperation with the artist, brings together many of the most important paintings and sculptures created by Baselitz over the past six decades.

The powerful and exciting works in the exhibition, from every phase of the artist's career, reveal the full thematic and stylistic range of his exceptional oeuvre. Key works from the 1960s, with a selection of the Hero and Fracture paintings, will feature in the exhibition, together with examples of the inverted images for which Baselitz became famous in the 1970s and 80s. A selection of the artist's large-format wood sculptures, paintings from the later Remix series and from recent years complete the survey of the work of one of the most original artists of the twentieth and twentyfirst centuries.

The exhibition has been organized in cooperation with the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, where it will be shown from June 21 – September 16, 2018.
