Georg Baselitz - Playing with Vibrant Colors

Top Lists

October 31, 2016

German neo-expressionist, post-modern painter, temporarily a part of what is often referred to as the Neue Wilden movement, Georg Baselitz has been painting for over 50 years, and creating sculpture for just over 30, climbing up to an estimated net worth of $20 million in the process. Seemingly playing with spellbindingly vibrant colors and endlessly varying the style, his choice of powerful subject-matter goes hand in hand with his life-long focus on the artistic potential of deformation. Since 1969 Baselitz has mostly painted his subjects upside down, confronting the human and cultural tragedies of our time in his own, unique way.
