Georg Baseltiz: I Was Born into a Destroyed Order

Georg Baselitz,Michael Werner

Michael Werner Gallery, London presents an exhibition of major works by German painter Georg Baselitz, one of the most important painters of the second half of the twentieth century. I Was Born into a Destroyed Order begins in the 1960s and surveys the first three decades of the artist’s career. A selection of seminal paintings, works on paper and sculpture will be on view.

This exhibition features works from 1960 to the mid-1990s. On view will be works from Baselitz’s “Pandemonium” series, an early “Hero” painting as well as important paintings from the “Fracture” series. Baselitz famously sought to separate representation from content by inverting the figure or motif, and the exhibition will include one of his first inverted landscape paintings from 1969. In the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, Baselitz continued to experiment with abstraction by rendering the figure upside-down. The exhibition will include some of the artist’s most significant paintings from that time as well as an extraordinary block of 22 works on paper from the artist’s “Saxon-Motif” drawings of 1975.
