Georg Baselitz is viewed as one of the greatest living painters. For his 80th birthday, Basel's Fondation Beyeler is staging a major retrospective that shows the artist has lost none of his dynamism.
Georg Baselitz was thrown out of art school at the age of 18 because of his love for Picasso, and he has remained controversial and provocative ever since. To mark his 80th birthday, DW looks back at his life and work.
The show Baselitz: Six Decades, held at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C., revisits the career of German artist Georg Baselitz, "one of the most original and inventive figurative artists of his generation."
