Touring retrospective celebrates thirty years of Baselitz

Currently at the Munich Kunsthalle, the exhibition will next move to the Edinburgh National Gallery of Modern Art

Until 17 May, the Kunsthalle is hosting a major retrospective of the work of Georg Baselitz comprising 120 works (mainly paintings and drawings, but also some sculptures in wood) from public and private collections in Europe and America. It is seventeen years since the first Baselitz retrospective, which was also held in Munich. The present exhibition covers thirty years of artistic activity concentrating on the different themes which have marked his career. The catalogue is published by the Hirmer Verlag and edited by Dr Siegfried Gohr, who also selected the works to be exhibited. After Munich the exhibition will be at the Edinburgh National Gallery of Modern Art from 30 May to 12 July, then at the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Vienna, from 23 July to 13 September.
