On the occasion of Georg Baselitz's 85th birthday, Museum Würth 2 in Künzelsau presents a retrospective featuring approximately 50 works by the artist.
Born on 23 January 1938, in Deutschbaselitz, Saxony, Georg Baselitz is one of the most important contemporary German painters. Best known for his coarse brushwork and strong colours, this exhibition focuses on another side of the Neo-Expressionist artist's practice featuring a group of prints in the atrium.
Since the mid-1960s, Baselitz has been dealing with various printing techniques and experimenting with their possibilities - from woodcuts to linocuts and wood engravings.
The works on view include 18 monumental linocuts produced between 1977 and 1979, and subsequently printed again in the 1990s. These enter into a dialogue with sculptures, graphics and paintings from the Würth Collection.
