Counting among his influences Art Brut, Art Informel, and Abstract Expressionism, as well as artists Munch and Kandinsky, German artist Georg Baselitz’s work is characterized by expressionistic mark-making and unrefined, even grotesque, figurative depiction.
Working in painting, drawing, printmaking, and monumental wood sculpture, Baselitz often addresses issues related to German national identity post-World War II, particularly the role of German artists. Baselitz is closely associated with fellow artists A.R. Penck and Eugen Schöenbeck.
