Georg Baselitz, independent artist

The first works by German painter Georg Baselitz go on display starting today at the Munich Gallery of Modern Art (Pinakothek der Moderne). For art critic Francisco Calvo Serraller, Georg Baselitz is "a central figure in German neoexpressionism. Today, at the age of 68, he remains one of the most respected German artists. ... Having left East Germany in 1956 to settle in the West after being expelled from the Academy of Fine Arts for 'political immaturity', Baselitz is a kind of internal exile. He found himself isolated, due to the dominance of the French and American currents at the time. He always managed to resist the pressure and influence of the prevailing trends in order to develop his art independently."
