Artwork description

Georg Baselitz Hon RA re-energises the grand tradition of self portraiture. This electrifying piece is a direct homage to the gestural figures of Willem de Kooning, whose primal paintings Baselitz encountered as a student in 1958.

Like that great abstract expressionist, Baselitz has worked instinctively and with a watercolour-like fluidity. Consistent with his established formal vocabulary, which acts to disrupt the painted subject visually and symbolically, Baselitz portrays himself upside down.
