Georg Baselitz first began painting and displaying inverted works in 1969. Meant to force both the artist and his audience to consider representational art from a new perspective, inversion has become a defining characteristic of Baselitz’s practice. Here, strong, black brushstrokes delineate facial features over an alternating background of green and red to create a raw and evocative painting.

Georg Baselitz (German, b.1938) is considered to be one of the forefathers of the German Neo-Expressionist movement, occasionally identified as “Neue Wilden”. His career was boosted in the 1960s after police took action against one of his paintings, “Die große Nacht im Eimer,” because of its provocative and offensive sexual nature. Throughout his career, Baselitz has varied his style, ranging from layering substances to one in which he focuses more on lucidity and smooth changes. Baselitz lives and works outside Munich, Germany, and Imperia, Italy.
