Georg Baselitz

"Georg Baselitz: Back Then, In Between and Today" exhibition in Munich will trace the patterns that run through his career

The retrospective, which will span from the beginning of his career to its current phase, will be held at the Haus der Kunst

The Haus der Kunst, Munich, is staging a monographic retrospective of the German artist Georg Baselitz. Spanning the past 50 years of his career, “Georg Baselitz: Back Then, In Between and Today” (19 September-1 February 2015) aims to connect his early paintings from the 1960s and 1970s with a recent body of work known as the “Black Paintings” (above, Bei Willem, 2009) as well as a series of monumental bronze sculptures. The curatorial focus is on themes and motifs that recur throughout Baselitz’s work, such as the human figure and the eagle.
