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.

Exhibition schedule: Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Kupferstich-Kabinett, June 20–August 25, 2008 · Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, September 18–November 16, 2008

Considered a reactionary movement opposed to modernism, which is increasingly thought of as sterile and totalitarian, Postmodernism is an intellectual, cultural movement, whose beginnings are rooted in the latter half of the twentieth century.
